Miller Homes strengthens North West senior leadership team
John Hardy and Matthew Paul have joined the housebuilder’s Warrington office, taking on the roles of land director and commercial director for the region, respectively.
Hardy began his journey in the housebuilding industry in 2006 as a land buyer at Jones Homes, where he worked for 14 years and progressed through the ranks to the position of land director.
Having subsequently held the role of land director at both Bloor Homes and Taylor Wimpey, Hardy brings more than 20 years of experience to the same position at Miller Homes.
In his new role at Miller Homes, Hardy will be responsible for identifying new opportunities in the region and securing planning permission, as well as negotiating land deals.
Hardy commented: “[Miller Homes has] an outstanding reputation for delivering quality homes and five-star customer service, and I am excited to contribute my experience to further enhance the company’s success.”
Matthew Paul has also been appointed to Miller Homes’s senior leadership team as commercial director. He joins from Barratt Homes, where he began his journey as a trainee quantity surveyor and worked his way up to being commercial director.
With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, Paul brings expert insights into cost management, project economics, and strategic planning to the company in order to enhance its commercial endeavour.
In the role of commercial director at Miller Homes, Paul will manage the commercial team of quantity surveyors, buyers, and estimators.
Paul said he is “honoured” to join the team as commercial director.
“I look forward to leading the team and contributing to the company’s ongoing and future projects”, he said.
David Brackley, regional operations director at Miller Homes, added: “John and Matthew bring a wealth of experience from a portfolio of respected homebuilders to the team.
“They will further strengthen the Miller Homes North West Board as we celebrate an extremely positive first half to the year.”
In July, the company was granted planning permission to build its 328-home scheme off Lunts Heath Road in Halton.
