Starting from the foot of the construction ladder, he is a self-taught professional and has experienced most aspects of construction and residential real estate development. He has a relentless work ethic and this, combined with an outstanding knowledge of construction, real estate, raising capital, financial markets and business, gives him
an excellent foundation to lead Magna to continued success.

Chris has remarkable leadership qualities and is adept at building and managing high performance teams. He has successfully raised tens of millions of pounds in joint venture equity and debt financing for use in real estate development projects.
