New Managing Director for Persimmon North West

21 July 2023

Persimmon has appointed a new Managing Director to head up its operations across the North West region.

Ian Hilliker joins Persimmon with over 30 years of experience in the industry, most recently serving as North West Managing Director at Vistry Partnerships.

Prior to his role at Vistry, he spent 18 years at Barratt Homes with eleven years as Technical Director working out of their Manchester office.

He will oversee progress on nine developments already operational throughout the region in areas including Liverpool, Staffordshire and Greater Manchester.

With a team of nearly 130, including 11 apprentices, Ian’s passion for developing talent is sure to be put to good use as Persimmon continues to invest in skills and training working with colleges and training providers across the two counties.

Commenting on his new role, Ian said “I’m thrilled to be joining Persimmon and head up the North West team at what is a really exciting time for the business.

“With several developments already underway and applications progressing well with planning authorities, I’m looking forward to working with communities and policy makers to deliver much needed, high-quality new homes.”

Regional Chair John Roocroft said “I’m delighted to have secured Ian’s services to lead our North West business and drive forward our exciting plans across the region.

“He has a wealth of industry experience that is sure to be invaluable in delivering these plans and I look forward to working closely with him.”
