Archie Ward

Archie Ward
Managing Partner

Archie is the founder and managing partner of Consortia and has been instrumental in guiding the business through a trajectory of sustained growth into various projects and geographies throughout the country. He is responsible for leading the day to day management of the business and overseeing all aspects of the company’s development pipeline.

Archie has a first class degree from UCL in Construction and Project Management and has acquired significant industry knowledge and experience through taking a number of major development projects from concept to completion.

Archie’s friendship with Olly goes back to their days studying together at University College London, where the two first conceived the early ideas of one day running a property business together.

Olly Clayton

Olly Clayton
Partner

Olly runs Consortia Developments alongside Archie and plays a fundamental role in shaping both the direction of the business and the company’s future growth strategy. He has led Consortia’s recent push into the midlands, sourcing new development opportunities and forging key relationships with industry professionals.

His main responsibilities cover varying roles; from implementing specific project business plans, sourcing new development opportunities, appointing a working alongside consultants, to raising capital and focusing on the general development and expansion of the business.

Olly started his career at national house building firm Taylor Wimpey PLC, later going on to join his former UCL classmate Archie Ward at Consortia Developments. Since then, the two have forged a dynamic partnership working alongside one another to grow the business and raise its profile in different locations throughout the country.

Chris Edwards

Chris Edwards
Non-Executive Director

Chris is a key board member, advisor and co-investor who was instrumental to the set-up of Consortia in 2014. When Consortia lined up its first project Chris provided the initial support, platform and know how needed to get the project off the ground.

Chris has a long background in construction and business development much of which gained from founding and running CC Construction over 20 years ago. During that period CC Construction has made it into an elite group of contractors competing for highly specialised single residences and landmark London buildings where quality and individuality is constantly taken to new levels.

Chris’ role has been vital to pathing the way for Consortia to expand its operations over the years, by providing his guidance and expertise as the business has evolved. It is safe to say that without Chris’s input Consortia would not be where it is today.
