Double the expertise as housebuilder makes new appointments

Persimmon Homes Yorkshire has boosted its senior management team with two new experts in its land and technical departments.

The Persimmon team welcomes Joel Frank as Head of Land and Matt Owen as Head of Technical, to its Fulford-based team.

Bringing more than 15 years of industry experience, Joel has developed his land expertise across the Yorkshire region having worked for both PLC and privately owned housebuilders. His new focus will be securing land acquisitions across North and East Yorkshire. 

Joel said: “I am very pleased to be joining the Persimmon Homes team. I started my career on a graduate scheme and having taken the decision to specialise in land acquisitions I have never looked back.”

“My new role will see me strengthening my existing relationships and forging new ones as I pursue a range of land opportunities across the region.”

Civil engineer Matt has specialised as a consultant for 12 years before working for national housebuilders. Progressing from engineer to managerial roles, 36-year-old Matt joins Persimmon Homes from Barratt Homes and will manage all technical, engineering and architectural aspects of the developments.

Matt said: “Having worked mostly in the West Yorkshire region, a new area is a fresh and exciting challenge. Working closely with the planning and construction team my role will ensure all technical guidance is adhered to, delivering effective solutions, as well as supporting the business from land acquisitions through to site completions and final adoptions.”

Scott Waters, managing director for Persimmon Homes Yorkshire, said: “I am delighted to welcome such a dynamic and knowledgeable duo to the Fulford office. Their expertise is an asset to the team and will play an integral role in our strategic plan to grow our development portfolio across the region.”
