Cheshire developer Muller Property Group has announced a trio of appointments in Ben Willett, Jonothan Croft and Richard Lawrence.
Muller said that the three have joined as senior members of its land acquisition team to deliver the group’s long term plans around strategic land promotion, sustainable housebuilding and the creation of future development opportunities.
Land director Ben Willett worked in banking with RBS before joining Balfour Beatty Investments for an 11-year stint, before transferring to Balfour Beatty Homes. He has worked in areas including land acquisition, property development, housebuilding cost, revenue fundamentals and planning analysis, including two years working in the US.
Croft has worked in the sector since 1993, working in land acquisition, consultancy and project management. His experience includes an eight-year spell working for North Wales care home developer Castlemead.
Bringing more than 17 years’ experience in the sector, Lawrence has covered investment sales, international development, residential property and residential land acquisition. He most recently worked as land acquisitions director for the Deansgate Group, with a focus on affordable housing.
Colin Muller, chief executive of Muller Property Group, said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Ben, Jonothan and Richard to Muller Property Group.
“With over 50 years’ combined experience in the housing and property sector at home and abroad, our new team members bring a wealth of skills, experience and knowledge that will undoubtedly play a vital role in meeting our strategic business aims.
“Muller Property Group has set itself some very challenging business aims for the coming years around strategic land promotion and the development of sustainable new housing and I have every confidence that Ben, Jonothan and Richard, along with other members of the team, will successfully meet our ambitions in support of our clients and other key partners.”
Muller schemes currently in the works include a 66-home project close to Buckley in North Wales and Houndings Park, a development in Sandback that has outline consent for 200 homes, with a hybrid application now submitted including a care home, food store and other retail.
