Persimmon Homes Thames Valley appoints new MD

Ian Beal (pictured) has been appointed to head up the regional business of housebuilder Persimmon Homes Thames Valley, based in Camberley.

Beal said:

“Here in the Thames Valley region we have a really healthy land bank but it is being constrained by planning; I don’t want us caught out by changes in legislation that result in sites that would have received permission six months ago no longer meeting the requirements of the planning system. I want us two to three steps ahead.

“And while our key drivers are quality and performance, I’m also keen to establish close links with suppliers and sub-contractors, so that they can see what we’re doing and what our goals are in order to bring them on board to embrace our ideals.”

After studying Building Technology and Surveying at Buckinghamshire New University, Beal spent the first period of his career in the technical departments of numerous companies in the south, before being appointed MD to head up a new region for Redrow Homes in the late 90s.

His success saw him head hunted for a similar role by Wilson Connelly, before leaving to join Miller Homes as Area Managing Director in 2004 and establishing their new Basingstoke office, overseeing the southern region. Similar positions followed at Bellway and Dandara before joining Persimmon.

Persimmon Homes Thames Valley is delivering new homes across Hampshire, Berkshire, Mid Sussex, and West Sussex.
