Top five housebuilder Linden Homes has made two senior appointments to its Eastern region, bringing in a new managing director and sales and marketing director.
New managing director Trevor Dempsey previously worked at Bovis Homes where he held the same post overseeing its large central region. The second senior appointment is new sales and marketing director Karen Roake joining from retirement living firm Pegasus Life.
Both arrive as Linden Homes Eastern is expanding its footprint across Essex and taking the business into East London. Among a series of high profile new sites is its flagship St Clement’s in Mile End. The company has also been selected as preferred developer by the Greater London Authority to deliver the Silvertown Way development in Canning Town, East London.
Based at Linden Homes’ Chelmsford office and reporting into divisional managing director Tom Nicholson, Trevor will oversee all the regional operations, including land buying, building, sales, design and quality.
Trevor said: “Galliford Try has the national coverage and expertise to take on any project, and Linden Homes is a company that has recently grown organically into the market place and not at any cost. I admire that.
“The focus at Linden remains on customer satisfaction and quality which is a different outlook to some of our peers. I think the economic recovery has seen some developers losing focus and the importance of being a good house builder, Linden Homes is different.”
Commenting on the appointments, divisional managing director, Tom Nicholson said: “Our Eastern region has gone from strength to strength, with successful sites including Burntwood Square and St John’s making a positive lasting impression on the area. Trevor and Karen join us at a crucial turning point; the business unit has expanded its remit as we look to open more sites across our operating area including into the capital. We welcome their expertise and fresh approach to the customer journey, which is of utmost importance for our buyers across the region.”
