Gordon More appointed Non-Executive Director by Allison Homes

Allison Homes has announced the appointment of Gordon More as a Non-Executive Director. A former Chief Investment Officer and interim Chief Executive of Homes England, Gordon joins the Lincolnshire-based developer as they seek to deliver against ambitious targets.

Interim Chief Executive of Homes England until September 2021, Gordon also has over 30 years’ experience in banking and finance. Before his appointment as interim CEO, Gordon was Chief Investment Officer at Homes England, playing a key role in the development of the strategic housing plan adopted by the UK government.

Speaking of the appointment, John Anderson, CEO Allison Group said: “Gordon’s experience, and passion for, encouraging the proliferation of small and medium enterprise (SME) housebuilders will provide invaluable support to Allison’s board as we pursue our targets. As a well-funded SME, we are in a strong position to make a significant impact on the industry, shaking up the way things are done and exploring new avenues to help deliver the homes that this country needs so urgently. I am looking forward to Gordon’s advice and guidance as we continue this exciting phase.”

Gordon More said: “Allison Homes is already marking themselves out as an ambitious company with innovative approaches to the delivery of new homes. The recent announcement of the Legal & General partnership is an excellent example of this, demonstrating a willingness to explore multi-tenure developments – which I believe play an essential role in the future of housebuilding in the UK.”

Along with developing partnerships to support growth, Allison Homes has also turned attention to customer care and is working hard to build stronger customer relationships that last throughout the buying journey and beyond.

Gordon continues: “If SMEs are to compete with national housebuilders, they must exploit the agility of their size and find new ways of operating – whether that’s through establishing partnerships with other housing providers or by building loyalty and lasting relationships with buyers and residents. Allison Homes is already showing huge potential to achieve this, and I look forward to supporting them as they work towards their goals.”

Gordon takes up the new role from 1st April 2022.
