Keepmoat Homes has made a new, senior appointment with the hire of Ben Cook as Regional Managing Director for the South West.
The move follows the homebuilder’s plans to open a new business unit in the region, with plans to deliver 400 homes per year in the South West within 5 years of launching the division.
Based in Bristol, Ben has more than 20 years’ experience in house building, having previously worked in Land and Commercial Director roles for Taylor Wimpey, Barratt Homes, St. Modwen Developments and more recently, Crest Nicholson.
In his new role, Ben will be responsible for driving business growth and overseeing the successful delivery of developments across the South West, as Keepmoat Homes continues to build its presence in new regions, following in the footsteps of its burgeoning Scottish and Southern divisions.
Speaking about his new appointment, Ben said:
“After years in the industry, I’ve found a company that genuinely shares my passion for creating great places to live, in a market sector I feel truly passionate about. I look forward to driving the South West region towards our target of delivering 400 plus homes a year within the next five years, but more importantly, creating a sustainable business that delights its customers and becomes the partner of choice for landowners and councils to deliver first time buyer homes for the South West market.”
Tim Beale, Keepmoat Home’s Divisional Managing Director for the South, said:
“I’m looking forward to working closely with Ben to grow the Southern division of Keepmoat Homes. His extensive experience will help us to develop new partnerships in the area and build much needed homes across the region.”
Chief Executive for Keepmoat Homes, James Thomson, said:
“We’re delighted to have Ben on board – this is an exciting time for the region with the recent creation of the new South West division – and I’m confident with Ben’s experience, skills and local knowledge that he will be a valuable asset to the team and its future success.”
