Miller Homes has appointed Mark Leigh as the new Managing Director for its Yorkshire region.
Mark Leigh, 53, from Knaresborough joins the housebuilder from Taylor Wimpey, and has enjoyed a successful senior level career in the housebuilding industry.
“I am delighted to join the Miller team in Yorkshire at a very exciting time in its history and already feel that we can achieve much together,” said Mark. “There are years of experience amongst the team and this forms the foundation for a strong platform for ongoing growth and success.”
Taking over the reins from Steve Birch after his retirement, Mark started his career as a Graduate Trainee with Alfred McAlpine homes and rose through the ranks beginning his director level career in 1998.
“The Yorkshire Region at Miller Homes offers great potential from a market perspective and, when coupled with the Miller brand and reputation I feel a real sense of excitement to be leading the team in Wakefield,” said Mark. “As we implement our strategy for delivering further growth and continuous improvement we are confident that we can continue to build homes for future communities that can make a real difference and be the place to be.”
Miller Homes Yorkshire has plans to deliver in excess of 600 units per year by 2020. The housebuilder, in the Yorkshire region, currently has nine developments with four more due to open before the end of the year. Properties range from two bedroom apartments to five bedroom luxury homes and a number of purchase initiatives are available to assist buyers in a variety of ways.
