The Penrith-based housebuilder has appointed Andy Patmore as operations director, tasked with supporting the company’s construction and commercial teams.
Patmore joins from Gleeson Homes, where he was operations director for Cumbria, and he has previously held senior roles at other housebuilders including Lovell Homes and Persimmon Homes. He has around 40 years’ experience in the industry.
In his new role, Patmore will oversee projects in south Cumbria under the Russell Armer Homes brand, after Genesis Homes acquired that business earlier in the year. He will also more broadly lead the commercial and construction teams across other projects.
Genesis has sites in construction at Rheda North Park, Hackthorpe and Stainburn, and pipeline developments in Calthwaite, Penrith, Etterby and Lazonby due to commence this year.
Said Patmore: “I am happy to be working for such an ambitious and forward-thinking company in what is a very exciting time for Genesis Homes.
“There is a lot planned in the coming weeks and months, and I will use the knowledge and experience I have acquired over the decades to help the business to grow and develop in line with its exciting and ambitious business plan.”
Genesis managing director Nicky Gordon added: “Andy joins Genesis at a time of rapid growth for the business, and we’re delighted to welcome someone with his experience and knowledge of the industry into our team.
“His role in guiding teams working on our existing developments and preparing for upcoming projects will be crucial, and we know the excellent organisational skills he has acquired over decades will be of a huge benefit.”
