Countrywide has rebranded its land and new homes team as Countrywide Residential Development and has announced a raft of new senior managers.
The agency group sold a record 5,500 new homes last year and the rebranding comes after acquisitions of specialist businesses such as Greene & Co., Preston Bennett, Lanes New Homes and the ikon consultancy.
Several individuals who led those companies will take on senior roles in the group’s planning, land and consultancy offerings.
Sue Fisher has been named as Head of Residential Development in Greater London, having worked for over 20 years at Preston Bennett. Matthew Haycox, a former director at Hamptons International, becomes Head of Residential Development in Central London.
Richard Henley is the new Group Planning & Land Director, expanding a previous role at Preston Bennett, while ikon’s Nick Cook becomes Group Consultancy Director.
“We have focused our offering around the needs of our clients, enhancing our planning, land, consultancy, new homes sales and investment arms to ensure the new homes market is properly supported to increase its output. Countrywide Residential Development offers an award-winning full service proposition tailored made and constantly evolving to the needs of residential developers and housebuilders” claims James Poynor, Group Residential Development Director for Countrywide.
