Josh Towle
Creative Lead

Josh is the baby of the team but make no mistake, experience is no substitute for style! In his five years commercial experience, following a first-class honours degree in architecture, Josh has worked on a range of projects, from small reception designs up to being the design lead on 38,000 sq ft full CAT B project. Josh loves to explore various methods of bringing a client’s brief to life. Not only does he feel passionately about wellness and the workplace environment, but he also has a technical eye for detail. A passion for golf and skiing keep Josh out of trouble outside of hop.

Kristina Rybko
Office Manager

Offices don’t run themselves by magic. That’s where Kris comes. Tea in one hand, IT cable in the other. A walking random fact encyclopaedia and master juggler, forever solving problems and connecting the dots. A devil for detail and a tough cookie, guardian of hop’s interests and protector of its reputation. One minute negotiating contracts; and the next minute sourcing suppliers and reading the small print. Kris has a passion for travel and a love of walking the city to clear her head!

Dan loves mountain biking and all things Derbyshire!

Wayne Parkinson
Director

Wayne likes design and build. And sport. With over eighteen years in fit out Wayne has seen a lot of what commercial fit out has to offer including project management and commercial management but mostly pre construction and the Project Director role. He even tries to dip into design where he can, but look away if you don’t like things symmetrical and monotone! Wayne in particular brings a wealth of experience in complex multi-tenanted environments such as the Shard, Walkie-Talkie and Cheesegrater. Outside of work it is skiing, rugby, cricket and golf, alongside the family, that makes him tick.
