Garry McHugh comes from a Joinery background and set up GM Developments 30 years ago. The business has grown over the years and is now considered one of the foremost high-end residential building companies in South West London.
In 2014, Garry and Ian Sellars decided to combine their skills to form GM London, to undertake property development. It has grown from building one-off bespoke houses to multi-unit sites without – most importantly – compromising the quality of finish.
Garry is a Director at GM London, with responsibilities for the development and choice of construction of the scheme to be built.
Ian Sellars is a qualified Solicitor and was a Partner in the international law firm Clifford Chance. He then moved over to private equity and joined Permira, where he was a partner for over 20 years. He is now retired from Permira.
Ian has used GM Developments for over 25 years on various building projects and in 2014 Ian and Garry took the decision to jointly establish GM London, to undertake property development projects.
At GM London, Ian focuses on the structure and the financing of deals.
Tracy qualified as an architect in Ireland and has worked in Ireland, Spain and the USA. She has experience across several sectors including retail, industrial, education and master-planning.
Tracy’s true preference is working on residential projects, partly because it’s rewarding to see the impact her work has on people’s quality of life.
The decision to join GM London was therefore very easy, especially with the value the company places on creating quality schemes and good design.
