Next Direction Limited

Management Profile

Every project is directed by our MD, John Holt.

After graduate internship in the Architect's Department he became purchasing manager at Southampton University and helped to found the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium.

For 12 years he was chief specifier for YRM Interiors/YRM Architects, one of the largest practices in the UK providing design advice and FF+E management for the widest range of clients including international corporates such as J P Morgan and Arthur Andersen, residential, hospitality, academic and hospital developments in the Middle East, most of the development phase of Gatwick Airport, and hotel and leisure projects for Hilton, Sheraton and quality independents.

He has written for design, architecture, business and consumer magazines, and lectured on design and furnishing at Middlesex University.

In 1996, John managed the FF+E procurement on a major 750000 sq ft relocation for Barclays Capital, the fast-growing investment bank. Since then, we have worked on Barclays projects all over the world.

In 2007 we were engaged by Russia's leading financial services conglomerate Renaissance Capital to provide furniture and design management to its new Moscow headquarters and global rollout, from New York and Dubai to Nigeria and Kazakhstan.

Our hospitality clients include Monogram Hotels for whom we are developing and implementing an entirely new resort-boutique concept for its properties in the Mediterranean.
