Lioncourt appoint Land Director to support growth plans

Worcestershire based house builder Lioncourt Homes has announced the promotion of Rachel Cartwright to the role of Land Director.

Rachel brings with her a wealth of varied experience, having sourced contract opportunities within large construction companies such as Thomas Vale and Kier Group, as well as working on land opportunities with national estate agency Connells.

Rachel joined the company as Senior Land Manager in 2018, with a focus on seizing new development opportunities whilst managing and cultivating existing relationships with land agents. Having played a vital role in coordinating and securing land bids, Rachel’s input has helped Lioncourt achieve challenging targets in recent years.

The role of Land Director is a key element of Lioncourt Homes’ growth strategy, which will see the number of new homes being developed increasing to more than double the current figure over the course of the next 3 to 5 years. The company is currently considering land opportunities across the Midlands and South West, with a target site size from 30 – 150 units.

Rachel commented on the promotion:
“I am thrilled to be stepping into this role at such an exciting time for Lioncourt as the company aims to accelerate land acquisition. The additional responsibilities of the Director position are more strategy focused and will involve securing future opportunities for the business to help achieve our growth targets. We have a great group of people at Lioncourt who have worked incredibly hard to develop a rigorous bidding process – it is very much a team approach with contributions from across the company, a process which I enjoy overseeing.

I am looking forward to helping shape the future of Lioncourt Homes as we move forward into this next phase.”

Colin Cole, CEO, commented:
“I am delighted to announce Rachel’s promotion. Rachel has gained an excellent understanding of Lioncourt Homes over the past 3 years and her contribution to the Land team working on various land bids has been fundamental to our success. The role will be instrumental for our strategy going forward, to grow our operations whilst maintaining our five-star quality reputation as a house builder.”
