A new managing director has been appointed at Persimmon Homes Midlands.

Zac Hurst has taken over the reins at the Northampton office, where he will be responsible for the 125 strong team and will oversee all of the company’s regional operations throughout Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, South Leicestershire and Bedfordshire.

Zac joined the company in 2016 as a Quantity Surveyor before moving through the ranks to become Operations Director in 2022.

Commenting on his appointment, Zac said: “I am joining a great team and I look forward to meeting with our local suppliers and contractors who support us in delivering quality homes. Our recent 5 star quality rating is testament to the hard work of our teams and I aim to grow the business in an area of great opportunity.”

He added: “My focus for the business is firmly on ensuring a positive experience for all customers, delivering beautifully designed and well-constructed homes they can enjoy living in for many years to come.

“Persimmon is known for creating vibrant and sustainable communities across the region, providing much-needed new homes and infrastructure to ensure the long-term viability of our towns and villages,” said Zac.

“I hope to continue our work with the local communities where we are building. We have previously supported hundreds of small charities, schools, sports clubs and voluntary groups through our Community Champions funding scheme, and we are always keen to connect with good causes that enhance the lives of local people.”

Regional divisional director, Simon McDonald, said: “Zac is known and well-respected throughout the industry and we are delighted he is taking over the helm at our Midlands office.”
