Growing housebuilder attracts top North East talent
January 8, 2017
Story Homes has appointed Lyndsey Walton as Sales Manager and David Aston as Production Manager. They will cover the region’s northern sites, including Brierdene and Dove Park in North Tyneside, Oakland Park in Northumberland, Fairfields Manor in Crawcrook and further sites which are due to open this year.
Lyndsey joins from Miller Homes where she worked for almost five years. She said: “I have been working in housebuilding for more than 10 years now. One of my favourite aspects of the job has always been following the customer journey and feeling part of this exciting time in any customer’s life. To now support the sales team to deliver this for Story Homes, which has a reputation for five-star customer service, is fantastic.
“When the opportunity came up to join Story Homes I was really interested. It’s exciting to be part of an expanding developer and be able to develop and shape the sales team in the region as we further grow and expand.”
Being able to make a difference in a rapidly growing company is also one of the reasons that David Aston wanted to join Story Homes as Production Manager.
He said: “I’ve worked in construction for housebuilders for 25 years, working at Bellway for more than 15. I left to work with Galliford Try to set up Linden Homes three years ago and really enjoyed being involved at such an early stage.
“Story Homes has a great reputation and is really making waves in the North East as it opens more sites. I’m really pleased to join the company at this significant time and look forward to supporting the production team to ensure that the renowned Story Homes quality remains a key priority across each site.”
Ian Worgan, Managing Director for Story Homes North East, said: “Making sure we employ individuals that share our Story Homes values is a very important part of our recruitment process. Lyndsey and David are both great additions to our regional team, bringing with them a wealth of experience in housebuilding while also understanding what our company stands for.
“2017 will be a significant year for Story Homes in the North East, and a strong regional management team will ensure that we achieve our ambitious growth plans in the right way.”
