William Davis Homes is opening a West Midlands office, as part of its ambitious business expansion plans. The award-winning Leicestershire-based company has appointed a new West Midlands Land Director and two senior land and planning professionals to strengthen its growth strategy in the region.
The specialist team will be based in Warwickshire, giving William Davis a permanent presence in the West Midlands for the first time.
The 5-star housebuilder already has successful housing developments in Coventry, Warwickshire and Worcestershire – and has secured a further 16 parcels of land across the West Midlands, with the potential to deliver thousands of new homes as well as creating new jobs and training opportunities.
Guy Higgins, Managing Director of William Davis Homes, said: “Our aim is to build a pipeline of developments in the West Midlands to support our growth as a business, and we are actively seeking opportunities to acquire more land in the West Midlands. Having a dedicated team of land professionals based in the region will help with this.”
The team is headed by Matt Colloby, who has been appointed as the company’s West Midlands Land Director. Matt has been with William Davis for more than 30 years and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this new role.
He said: “This is an exciting challenge which brings a real opportunity to grow, build upon our existing operations and further strengthen relationships in the region. I am very much looking forward to growing the team over the next twelve months.”
Also in the new West Midlands team are James Chatterton, Senior Planner and Andrew Morgan, who has recently joined the company as Senior Land Manager.
They will be based at Waterloo Place in Leamington Spa from 1 October 2022.
In the current financial year, William Davis is planning to build and complete the sale of more than 400 new homes at more than a dozen sites across the East and West Midlands.
