Allison Homes welcomes trio of senior appointments

We are delighted to have welcomed three new senior members to our team over the last few months.

Ian Trinder, Joe Marks and Georgina McCrae have been appointed as Chief Financial Officer, Head of Engineering and Planning Director respectively, with the latter two working for our East region and Ian operating at a Group level.

Ian, originally from Newcastle and now living in Winchester, said: “I’ve been lucky to work with some of the world’s biggest and most successful real estate and private equity investors, and am looking forward to using this experience. Allison Homes is a great business in an undersupplied market and has huge potential.

“Since joining, I’ve been really impressed with the quality of the team, the commitment and the team spirit. We’re making great progress and following the move to our new office in Peterborough, morale is high and it feels like a real turning point for the business.

“Our main objectives are to make sure we secure more land, particularly in the South West and East Midlands so the business can grow and reach its potential, complete on a number of Partnership deals which are in the pipeline, and ensure we have consistent sales performance across all sites.”

Joe, from Rushden, commented: “It’s satisfying to see sites progress and not only see houses constructed but also infrastructure and facilities improved for local communities.

“As the market picks up for us and our competitors, the ability to achieve planning approvals and Section agreement approvals from the local authorities, within suitable timeframes to meet our program for growth, is going to be a major challenge. However, with the excellent team we have in place here at Allison Homes East I feel that we can meet it.

“The ability to lead and mentor junior members of staff and see them grow and improve also makes me feel proud and I look forward to seeing what we achieve together.”

Georgina, based in Lincolnshire, said: “Throughout my career, I’ve loved seeing vibrant communities become established on sites I’ve taken through the planning process. Watching them progress from a concept on paper to a place to live and enjoy, successfully integrating with the wider existing settlement, is something I’m very proud of.

“I’ve joined the business at a really exciting time. These next few months will be demanding for myself, the team and wider business, but with lots of existing land to convert into planning permissions and more on the way, it’s providing the challenge I was hoping for!

“My main priority is to build the Planning Team to meet the needs of the business, and our focus is to secure timely and viable planning consents to secure future Allison Homes development sites. We need to be flexible to the changing market demands and planning plays a big part in adapting our developments and homes to meet that.”
