Connells Group strengthens its Land and New Homes business with the appointment of Paul Quelch as Land Director.
Paul brings 30 years’ property experience to his role, the majority of which was spent at Connells in a variety of positions including Branch Manager, Area Director and Land & New Homes Director. Paul was most recently at Spicerhaart where he was Land Director for the North Region, and now rejoins Connells Group in his new role as Land Director across the Sequence brands of William H Brown, Allen & Harris and Brown & Merry.
As part of his responsibilities, Paul will be charged with forging new relationships with developers and landowners, promoting and acquiring strategic land opportunities for future developments of all scales and focusing his expertise, in particular, across the Oxford-Cambridge Arc.
“I know how determined the Group is to grow market share by offering the highest quality services, and I am delighted to be part of a business which has a history of continuous commitment and investment into its land and new homes operation going back decades,” says Paul. “Personally, I know and greatly respect the senior leaders in Sequence, and indeed Connells Group, and the way they have handled this most challenging of years, doing things properly and always putting staff first. Although I was tempted away a few years ago, I feel very lucky to have been welcomed back into the business.”
“There continues to be great demand for land and new homes, with a shortage of housing in the UK,” continues Paul. “Developers, and importantly the financiers that back them, are cautiously confident about the future, and although there may be some hurdles to jump in 2021, no one doubts the underlying strength of the UK housing market. I look forward to being part of the Land team at this exciting time.”
Connells Group is regarded as having the best land and new homes operation within the industry, selling almost 18,000 new homes over the past two years and prides itself on delivering a comprehensive service to meet and exceed the needs of landowners, builders, developers and local authorities.
