Following our restructure last year, we are continuing to build the Whiteburn business, and are pleased to have brought into the team two new members. With new sites acquired and various new projects in the pipeline, the expanded team will support delivery of our developments.
To boost our residential team, Roger Bainbridge joined us in April, bringing with him 25 years of experience in the residential development industry. Trained as an architect, Roger will be working with Eve McCurrich to evolve our new housing business, develop site layouts and procure and successfully deliver our new residential projects.
Ian Thomson has recently come aboard as a consultant to advise on finance and project management, as well as business planning, financial reporting and strategy. A chartered accountant, former Managing Director of Taylor Wimpey and Financial Consultant, Ian also has a wealth of experience in bringing large-scale development projects to a successful conclusion.
We are building our capabilities in residential, build-to-rent and commercial development, and these appointments will add to our creative capacity.
