Macbryde Homes is Expanding to Increase Quality Housing

Simon Finlay joins Macbryde Homes as Head of Development

We are thrilled to announce that Simon Finlay has joined us at our St Asaph-based office as Head of Development. The appointment comes as we seek to increase our market share across the region and increase quality housing across North West England and Wales.

Simon brings with him a wealth of experience in development and regeneration, focused predominantly within the house building sector. He has worked for market-leaders including Barratt Partnerships and David Wilson Homes and his most recent role was at Galliford Try Partnerships, where he acquired land from the Homes & Communities Agency and secured planning approval for the first Starter Homes scheme in the North West.

A Welcome Appointment

Speaking of his appointment to Macbryde Homes, Simon comments:

“Having worked with a number of very large house builders, I am looking forward to bringing my experience and ideas to Macbryde Homes. This is an exciting time for the business as it seeks to increase its overall output and reach across the North West and Wales and I am delighted to be a part of that.

“I believe my career to date will equip me with the skills to engage effectively with a wide variety of landholders and in doing so, win new sites for Macbryde’s future developments.”

Simon will report directly to Macbryde’s Managing Director, Simon Macbryde who comments on the need for Simon’s skills at this stage in the company’s evolution:

“Over the last 30 years, Macbryde Homes has successfully built a reputation for quality house building across North Wales and the North West of England and our award-winning properties have been enjoyed by a wide range of purchasers all of whom have wanted a superior property in a desirable location.

“The ever-increasing need for more quality housing, however, means that we have set our sights on expanding our operations through increased output and a stronger presence in the North West of England. Simon joining the team is central to the success of that vision and his experience will help access land for development across the region and help us realise greater market-share. I don’t doubt that Simon will help to bring the quality, reputation and style of Macbryde Homes to a far greater audience in the coming few years and we’re delighted to have him on board.”

Simon will assist in securing future sites for Macbryde Homes across the North West of England and Wales to add to our growing portfolio. Our current developments can be found here.
