Allison Homes appoints new Land Manager

Allison Homes Bourne have appointed a new Land Manager, to help secure new land opportunities across the Midlands.

Sophie Kendal is based at our group head office and central regional office in Bourne, Lincolnshire. She joined the company after previously working for two large PLC housebuilders in Cambridgeshire, in both Land Manager and Land Buyer roles. Prior to her working career, Sophie graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a degree in Human Geography and Town Planning.

As Land Manager, Sophie will be responsible for seeking out new land opportunities for the region and establishing strong relationships with agents and landowners. Day-to-day, Sophie replies to new land enquiries, reviews layouts ahead of acquisitions, meets with agents and landowners, and visits potential sites.

Sophie, from Stamford, said: “My role is really varied with no day ever being the same, which is so exciting. As part of my job, the team and I work very closely with solicitors to enable a swift and seamless acquisition.

“Everyone at Allison Homes is so welcoming and friendly, it’s a really great place to work and grow my career. In the Land department, we rely on receiving information from our Technical, Commercial and Sales teams, so having good working relationships with other members of the Allison Homes family is vital.

“The majority of my experience has been within the geographical areas of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire, so some of the locations that I will be covering at Allison Homes will be new to me. I’m really looking forward to branching out to these new areas, and to be playing an important part in the growth aspirations of Allison Homes. My goal is to acquire flagship sites for the region.”

John Anderson, CEO of Allison Group, said: “Sophie has joined Allison Homes at a hugely exciting time, as we are continuing to expand our central region and strengthen the Allison name.

“We are thrilled to have Sophie working alongside us to achieve our ambitious growth plans. She has brought a wealth of expertise and passion with her to the role, and we’re looking forward to seeing her thrive as Land Manager.”
