Upon that company entering administration, Anthony was asked to stay on and, then as co-Director, help lead the multi-million pound mixed-use scheme, on behalf of Lloyds Banking Group, to completion in 2010. The Cube is now home to the City’s leading brands such as Marco Piere White, Hotel Indigo, The Club and Spa, The Highways Agency etc.

Anthony is the youngest Chairman of a Career Academy in the UK chairing the City’s Enterprise Academy after founding it in 2009. In 2011, Anthony was placed in the Midlands Insiders list of ’42 under 42’ entrepreneurs to watch.
