Barratt Homes, one of Scotland’s largest house builders, is supporting its plans for future growth with a number of promotions and new appointment in its senior management team.
“This year we are planning to deliver more high quality homes for customers across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife than we’ve done in any other year. Our new moves and appointments will ensure that we are in an excellent position to build on our success to date and I am delighted to have new senior team members who have the skills, knowledge and experience to continue to grow our business,” said Alison Condie, managing director at Barratt Homes East Scotland.
Development director Mansoor Ali from East Scotland division has been promoted to regional development director with a remit for land buying and strategy across Scotland. With an experience of over 25 years, Ali has worked for Barratt Homes since 2001 and had led the identification and purchasing of land for the developer across Edinburgh and the Lothians since joining the firm. In his new role he will be responsible for leading Barratt Homes’ Scotland-wide land strategy.
Furthermore, Donald Borland has been appointed as regional finance director, a new dedicated role for Barratt’s Scottish business. Donald joined from Havelock Europa PLC where he was CFO and prior to that he spent 18 years with Miller Group, latterly as group finance director.
Apart from the Scotland-wide appointments, new ones have been made across the Scotland East division as well. Nicholas Wright took up the development director role in the East of Scotland following Ali’s move. With 15 years’ experience in housebuilding, Wright began his career as a chartered surveyor and joined Barratt Homes five years ago after holding senior roles at Bett Homes.
The East Scotland team also welcomes new operations director Andrew Morrison. Morrison was previously construction director at Bellway Homes, where he was responsible for the management and delivery of the whole construction process across all of the house builder’s Scottish developments.
The senior moves and appointments follow consistent growth and acquisition of new sites for the East Scotland team, as well as supporting its continued investment in new developments across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife. Barratt Homes has a number of new sites launching later in 2018, including St Clement’s Wells in Wallyford, and Preston Square in Prestonpans, East Lothian, as well as Harwood Park in Livingston.
