New Land Director for Churchill Retirement Living
Churchill Retirement Living has appointed Jim Robinson as its new Group Land Director. Based at the retirement living developer’s Head Office in Ringwood, Jim will work closely with Chairman & CEO Spencer McCarthy, and COO Martin Young, to oversee and develop the Company’s national land buying strategy.
Jim brings with him over 30 years’ experience in all aspects of the Land buying process, most recently as Head of Land at Midlands housebuilder Davidsons Homes, and before that Land Director at Bovis.
Churchill’s Chairman & CEO Spencer McCarthy said:
“I’m delighted to welcome Jim to the Churchill team and look forward to working with him to grow our land pipeline. Jim will play a very important role in making sure our regional Land teams buy more of the right sites in the right locations to feed the future growth of the business.”
Jim Robinson added:
“I’m excited to be joining Churchill and working closely with the Regional land teams to ensure we provide the foundations for the Company’s next phase of growth. The retirement sector is a fast-growing and important part of the UK’s housing market, and I’m looking forward to bringing the many benefits of this type of housing to more town centre locations across the country.”
Churchill Retirement Living is a leading provider of purpose built apartments specifically designed for the over 60s, creating new communities for those looking to live an independent, comfortable and fulfilling lifestyle in their retirement. Its developments across the country are located on brownfield sites of between 0.4 and 1.5 acres, and always within easy walking distance of town centre shops and amenities and good public transport links. Benefits of this type of housing include boosting local high streets which benefit from a regular customer base with ‘grey pounds’ to spend, and supporting the wider housing market by enabling older people to downsize and free up under-occupied family homes for younger people.
Jim joins the Company at an exciting time, as it has continued to win an array of industry accolades in 2019, including ranking 2nd in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For in the UK, along with a “Best Medium Housebuilder” Gold at the WhatHouse? Awards this November.
