Developer Linden Homes West Yorkshire has appointed Katie Charlesworth to head up its regional sales team.
With over a decade of new homes industry experience, Katie has taken on the role of sales and marketing director, based at the company’s Leeds head office.
Katie’s career path into new homes followed a spell working in the retail industry as a sales manager for a jewellery firm.
However, she says that she was so keen to get a foot in the door that she took a large drop in salary to pursue her dream job.
“I started as a trainee sales executive in 2007. I’d always had a keen interest in new homes, especially interior design, and would constantly be re-decorating,” said Katie – who has worked in West and East Yorkshire in roles including sales manager, head of department and sales and marketing director.
In her new position at Linden Homes West Yorkshire, Katie (pictured) will be working closely with all departments; construction, customer services, land, commercial and finance.
She said: “Ultimately, my main focus will be driving profitable sales and delivering results, this is only achievable if you have the ‘buy in’ of your team, so a lot revolves around creating the right environment in which people feel empowered to make their own decisions, bring ideas to the table and share best practice.
“My key objectives are to drive the divisional performance in all aspects of the sales function by implementing Linden Homes tried and tested methods, and further strengthen the company’s reputation not only for delivering quality homes, but a first-class customer journey for all our purchasers.”
