Dunstan Carter has been appointed as the first Business Development Manager at The Sharp Project.

Carter, who previously worked for Prolific North for two years,  will be charged with spearheading client retention for The Sharp Project, which provides workspace and community for over 60 businesses across the Creative Digital Sector. 

These include CGI producers, film makers, gaming developers, animators, digital agencies, tech start-ups and graphic designers. He will also head up new business activity and office sales whilst simultaneously promoting the facility to the North's creative, digital, tech and broadcasting sectors.

Carter will report directly to The Sharp Project's Joint Managing Directors Colin Johnson (Operations) and Rob Page (Commercial).

He said: "The Sharp Project has, for 10 years, been viewed by many as the place in the NW to set up creative businesses. 

“The opportunities available do make this very special environment stand apart from other offerings in the sector and I am looking forward to working with tenants, existing and new, as well as the brilliant team who have brought and continue to bring this space to life through hard work and original thinking."

Rob Page added: “Dunstan is a most welcome addition to the team here at The Sharp Project.  We have seen an increase in demand for space for an increasingly wide range of businesses but we are also crucially aware of the need to maintain our individuality. 

“Through a combination of his intuitive approach to this sector and a desire to work closely with the tenants Dunstan is well placed to move us to the next level as we enter our second decade."
