“We have invested in these eight appointments to drive the business forward across a number of areas including bringing sites forward to provide the support of much-needed development.”

One of the UK’s leading strategic land companies has made eight new appointments as the business continues to grow.

Richard Edwards has been appointed Planning Director at Gallagher Estates.

The team has also been boosted by the arrival of Sarah Griffiths and Stuart Field as Associate Planning Directors, Will Lombard and Bahadur Choongh as Strategic Land Managers, Will Neary as Project Manager, Richard Wilcox as Business Planning Controller and Darren Mace as Engineering Manager.

Gregg Wilkinson, Group Managing Director at Gallagher Estates said this was an exciting time for the business.

“We have invested in these eight appointments to drive the business forward across a number of areas including bringing sites forward to provide the support of much-needed development,” he said.

“We have recruited people with the expertise to add significant value to our projects, delivering medium and large-scale high-quality developments at our sites across the UK.

“Our focus remains on identifying, acquiring and promoting strategic land as we continue to grow the business.”

Will Lombard said “I am very pleased to have joined Gallagher Estates. The company has significant growth plans following the L&Q acquisition and it is exciting to be involved in these from the start. I have historically been focused on land acquisition in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire and I look forward to continuing to focus both here and across other regions of the UK.”

He will be working alongside Bahadur Choongh who, after completing an Economics BSc (Hons) Degree at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, was a graduate site searcher at Gladman in Congleton.

Richard Edwards, who has previously worked at Redrow and Barratt Homes, said: “I have been involved in the promotion of strategic land for many years. Gallagher Estates has always been at the very forefront of the sector and is continuing to deliver some of the most exciting new development projects in the UK. It is a great time to be joining an established business with ambitious plans for the future.”

Sarah completed a BSc Degree in City and Regional Planning and an MA in Urban Design at Cardiff University, and has moved to Gallagher Estates from Turley, where she was Senior Planner for four years.

Stuart worked at Barton Willmore and GVA in Birmingham before joining Gallagher Estates.

Will Neary, who is currently finishing a Masters of Law qualification at the University of Salford, has returned to the UK after spending six years as a project manager in Australia.

Richard Wilcox has been appointed as Business Planning Controller which is a new post at Gallagher Estates, concentrating on budgets, forecasts and financial information. He was previously a systems accountant at Baxi Heating UK.

Darren is a familiar face at Gallagher Estates, having previously worked for the company for nine years as Project Engineer. He re-joined after a three-year absence working for the St Francis Group.
