Barratt Homes bolsters Scottish team with senior appointments
One of Scotland’s largest house builders has bolstered its senior management team with a number of promotions and new appointments.
Supporting its plans for future growth, Barratt Homes sees development director Mansoor Ali from the East Scotland division promoted to regional development director with a remit for land buying and strategy across Scotland.
Ali, who has over 25 years’ experience in the construction industry, has worked for Barratt Homes since 2001 and had led the identification and purchasing of land for the developer across Edinburgh and the Lothians since joining the firm. His new role sees him responsible for leading Barratt Homes’ Scotland-wide land strategy.
The move is complemented by the appointment of Donald Borland as regional finance director, a new dedicated role for Barratt’s Scottish business.
Donald joined from Havelock Europa PLC where he was CFO. Prior to that he spent 18 years with Miller Group, latterly as group finance director.
As well as Scotland-wide moves, new appointments have been made across the Scotland East division.
Taking up the development director role in the East of Scotland following Ali’s move is Nicholas Wright. With 15 years’ experience in housebuilding, Wright began his career as a chartered surveyor and joined Barratt Homes five years ago after holding senior roles at Bett Homes.
The East Scotland team also welcomes new operations director Andrew Morrison.
Morrison was previously construction director at Bellway Homes, where he was responsible for the management and delivery of the whole construction process across all of the house builder’s Scottish developments. Andrew will be responsible for all daily operational matters in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
The senior moves and appointments follow consistent growth and acquisition of new sites for the East Scotland team, and supports its continued investment in new developments across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife.
Alison Condie, managing director at Barratt Homes East Scotland, said: “This year we are planning to deliver more high quality homes for customers across Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife than we’ve done in any other year. Our new moves and appointments will ensure that we are in an excellent position to build on our success to date and I am delighted to have new senior team members who have the skills, knowledge and experience to continue to grow our business.
“I’d like to congratulate Nicholas and Andrew on their new roles, and I am happy to see Mansoor and Donald taking on new pan-Scotland leadership positions that will allow our business to react to the changing demands of the house-building industry in the coming years.”
Barratt Homes has a number of new sites launching later in 2018, including St Clement’s Wells in Wallyford, and Preston Square in Prestonpans, East Lothian, as well as Harwood Park in Livingston.
