Local development company Stirlin has recently promoted five members of staff, to recognise their individual growth and define a number of key positions within the company as it grows.

Stirlin, which is based at Sadler Court in Lincoln, was co-founded by James Kirby in 2007 to develop high specification commercial and residential property – and since then has grown significantly.

Take a look at the five latest promotions within the firm:

Abi has also recently been appointed to the Homes by Stirlin board following her increasing involvement with all the company’s residential developments.
