More takes non-executive director role with housebuilder
Kingswood Homes has appointed Gordon More to the role. More was formerly the interim chief executive of Homes England.
More has spent more than 30 years in the banking sector focussing on real estate and general corporate sectors.
He was seconded from his role as managing director of the business support unit at Lloyds Banking Group to join Homes England as head of investments in 2014, taking on the role of chief investment officer three years later before serving as stopgap CEO for eight months.
Prior to moving into banking, he worked as a graduate engineer with Balfour Beatty after studying for a degree in civil engineering at the University of Strathclyde.
Managing director of Kingswood Paul Jones said: “Gordon has a wealth of experience in the finance and housing sectors and is a welcome addition to the Kingswood Homes board.
“With his knowledge and expertise, we’re confident of achieving our ambitious growth plans, helping us provide additional employment opportunities as we increase the number of homes we build.”
Kingswood Homes, headquartered at Little Hoole, near Preston, is currently building at Green Hills in Feniscowles and The Hawthorns in Elswick, Lancashire, and at The Market Quarter in Hatherleigh, Devon.
The company also has plans for 79 new homes in the Lancashire village of Hoddlesden, which was taken through the outline planning process by BXB Land Solutions before being bought by Kingswood.
