Charlie joins Bewley Homes’ land team as housebuilder sets sights on further expansion

28 Jan 2022

Bewley Homes has further strengthened its land team with the appointment of Charlie Brown.  Charlie has joined as Senior Land Manager to support Bewley’s exciting growth plans.

Charlie joins the award-winning South of England housebuilder in the wake of the company’s projected expansion plans which will see the company grow from £155m to £225m in three years.

With over 15 years in housebuilding, Charlie has spent almost all of those at Miller Homes Southern, where she held various roles in the land department, including three years as Land Director.

Reporting into Bewley Homes’ Land Director Geoff France, Charlie’s focus will be land acquisition in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, and West Sussex.

Commenting Charlie said: “I have admired Bewley as a quality housebuilder throughout my career and have been impressed with everything I have seen so far. I’m delighted to have joined an ambitious, growing, talented team at such an exciting time.”

Geoff France, Land Director at Bewley, added: “Charlie is very experienced in the industry and we are delighted to have her on board during this exciting time for the business.”

Charlie follows Andrew Driscoll, who joined at the end of last year as Western Land Director in a newly created position to support the expansion of Bewley’s territory west of Reading into Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and through to Bristol.

Andrew Brooks, Managing Director at Bewley Homes, said: “We have made some very experienced land appointments in recent months, and it signals Bewley’s intentions to grow the business strongly in the coming years. Both Charlie and Andrew have extensive experience in the housebuilding sector and are tremendous additions to our growing land and planning teams.”

Andrew added: “Being a privately owned, well-financed regional housebuilder with short chain of command means we can move quickly on land opportunities. We also have flexibility on how we structure a transaction which can suit a landowner. We are building a sustainable business and our reputation amongst our peers, agents and landowners is of paramount importance.”
