Peter McCuddenJim Opfer

Jim was born and also educated in Glasgow.

After being unable to find an apprenticeship after he left school he made the decision to return to school to study for his ‘O’ levels at the now demolished St Gerard’s Senior Secondary School in Govan. This was unusual for the time and Jim remains grateful to the then Headmaster for this opportunity, that led to him being able to study Architecture at the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art and the University of Glasgow.He graduated in 1978 and is now a Chartered Architect with a practice in Glasgow that works on a wide variety of projects.


Jim is delighted to be a Chairman at Mainstay Trust Limited and has watched its growth with pride.
