Two new land managers at Connells

Both Andrew and Tom bring a significant amount of experience to their new roles and Connells’ already extensive team of land and new homes experts. Prior to joining Connells, Andrew was the appointed consultant for Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment for Solihull Council. He has also worked as a Senior Land Manager for developer Chase Homes.

Tom joins Connells from Banner Homes so has in-depth knowledge on what developers are looking for in the current climate. He also has extensive experience on the agency side, having worked for two large land agents within the Solihull area previously. 

“We are delighted to welcome Andrew and Tom to Connells’ award-winning Land and New Homes team,” says Elizabeth Brown, Regional Director for Connells. “Both have a lot to offer landowners and developers in the Midlands region, and will bring a great deal of expertise to the service we can offer these customers.”

“Although there are still challenges in the land market, we are seeing a greater appetite for buying land and many developers reviving mothballed projects,” says Andrew. “I am looking forward to utilising some of the opportunities that this changing market presents and helping Connells remain at the forefront of land sales and acquisitions.”

“We are seeing a resurgence of demand for land in the Midlands, especially from the larger plcs,” says Tom. “I will be using my experience working for agent and developers in my new role at Connells, to help these customers find and acquire the best sites the West Midlands has to offer.”
