Anwyl appoints Redrow executives in Lancashire push
Anwyl Homes has appointed four new executives – including three from Redrow Homes – as part of its plans to expand into Lancashire and achieve a turnover of £100m in the next three to five years.
The Flintshire-based housebuilder has appointed two new executives to its newly-established Lancashire division, alongside two executives at its headquarters in Ewloe.
The housebuilder, which is part of the £50m-turnover Anwyl Group, currently builds around 350 homes a year across North Wales, Cheshire and Greater Manchester.
Matthew Tudor-Owen, who joins from Redrow Homes, will take up the role of land manager to work alongside Anwyl’s existing land director to identify and secure new sites, with a focus on the Lancashire area.
Anwyl Homes has also appointed two more executives from Redrow Homes – Ian McCann and Tom Grundy – to its newly-established Lancashire division.
The housebuilder had previously poached Redrow director John Grime to head up the division, which was opened earlier this year.
McCann joins as head of technical while Grundy joins as head of commercial, and will oversee surveying and procurement for the new division, as well as being responsible for expenditure and cost control.
Graeme Gibb has also joined the firm, from Bloor Homes, as sales director, and will take responsibility for Anwyl Housing’s sales and marketing teams at its Ewloe head office, as well as the company’s on-site home advisers.
Housing managing director at Anwyl Homes, Mathew Anwyl, commented: “Each of our new executives has extensive experience in the industry and brings with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
“Further strengthening our existing team and providing additional resource in our identified areas for expansion, I am looking forward to working with them to grow the business and achieve our expansion targets.”
The group’s Lancashire division acquired its first site in June, having exchanged contracts with Prescot Business Park for the purchase of more than nine acres of land in Prescot, Merseyside, for a £23m residential development.
Formerly the Prysmian Cable Factory, the site on Carr Lane forms part of the wider Prescot Park development that will eventually total 750 homes and open space.
