Midlands property group makes two strategic appointments
A Midlands-based property group has made two strategic appointments as it plans for significant growth.
The Deeley Group, which is based at the Coventry Business Park, has drafted in Anthony Holt as the company’s new Group Development Director and Jane Fradgley as Senior Development Manager.
It marks a step-change in the company’s ambitions to grow its Construction, Homes, Development and Investment divisions as well as introducing a new Affordable Living division where it works in partnership with social housing companies.
Peter Deeley, Managing Director of the Deeley Group, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Anthony Holt and Jane Fradgley to the Group as two very senior appointments. It’s part of our plan to grow the Group over the coming years.
“The Deeley Group has a very strong reputation across the region as a company that people want to do business with and wants to work in partnership with because of our integrity and agility in delivering projects that bring lasting benefits to their communities.
“Our aim, now, is to build on that and invest in our future growth.
“Our individual divisions will work even closer together on projects, which will enhance how we operate as a company on developments of all sizes and all types as well as bringing added value to the work we do.
“We believe there is a fantastic opportunity for the business to grow even further and that these are exciting times for our region.”
Anthony has more than 25 years of experience in the property industry in the Midlands taking in land purchase, the planning process, development, sales and leading multi-disciplined teams.
He said: “I am delighted to join the Deeley Group at such an exciting time for the business. I have been involved with sourcing, obtaining planning and developing out residential development and mixed use opportunities in the Midlands for over 25 years.
“I worked at Crosby Homes, part of the Berkeley Group, when they first ventured into city centre living in the Midlands, developing out schemes including Symphony Court in Birmingham.
“I went on to work with other housing developers in the retirement and open market sectors. Latterly, I was the Regional Development Director for Orbit Homes in the Midlands, overseeing land, build and sales for the region.
“I believe that experience can help support the growth ambitions of the Deeley Group.”
Jane has joined from Orbit Homes and has 20 years of experience in property. She said: “This is a great time to join the company as it looks to grow at a fast pace.
“I started working with a housing association on the management side but quickly moved into housing development where I have stayed, and have since gained an MBA which I studied for while working full time.
“To date, I have worked mainly for housing associations, both local and national, although I also worked for a consultancy firm for a period, which involved many major plc developers.
“Throughout my career, I’ve delivered various complex schemes that have required working with a range of parties to help bring developments forward and I believe that will help me in this exciting new role.”
