Keepmoat recruits former Wain Homes CEO
Peter Barlow has taken on the role of regional managing director for the North West at the housebuilder.
Barlow comes to Keepmoat after 30 years at Wain Homes, where he was chief executive.
In his new regional managing director role, Barlow will be based out of Keepmoat’s Speke office. He is charged with delivering the company’s goal of constructing 600 homes a year.
“I’m looking forward to working with Keepmoat’s North West team to build our regional land pipeline and expand our partnership model with new, strategic organisations,” Barlow said.
He was welcomed to the Keepmoat team by chief executive Tim Beale.
Beale said: “We are always looking out for strategic appointments who will enable us to build on our values and objectives, to strengthen Keepmoat regionally and nationally.
“Over the next few years, I’m looking forward to seeing how Peter builds on the successes in the North West that have already been established by the regional team.”
Keepmoat works in partnership with Homes England, local authorities, and registered providers to deliver housing, including more than 19,000 homes since 2009. Most of those homes are affordable, with many developed on brownfield sites. In the North West, Keepmoat has planning permission to build 169 homes in Wigan and 250 in Runcorn.
