In his role, Chris is responsible for residential land acquisitions across the East of England in support of Hill’s five-year business plan and growth strategy, prioritising short- to medium-term projects that can achieve planning approval and commence construction within a three-year window.

Chris’ geographical area will include Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, and targeted developments will align with the company’s sustainability objectives, which include a 20% biodiversity net gain target across all developments.

Chris brings a wealth of experience to his new position, having started his career with Leach Homes, where he completed a degree in quantity surveying at the University of Westminster before being promoted to Land and Planning Manager during his 15-year spell with the company. Chris then joined Matthew Homes as Senior Land Manager, covering the northern home counties for four years, before moving to Hayfield Homes as Area Land Director for a further four years.

Andy Hill OBE, Group Chief Executive of The Hill Group, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Chris to our team and look forward to his contribution in driving our land acquisition strategy forward. This is an important strategic appointment to ensure continued growth in the East and I am confident the team will benefit from Chris’ impressive track record, experience, and contacts.”

Chris will be based between Hill’s Cambridge office and the company’s head office in Waltham Abbey, Essex.
