VIKKI ‘COMES HOME’ TO PERSIMMON HOMES
10 December 2021
Vikki Tunstall-Brown has been appointed as new area sales manager for the South Midlands region.
Vikki is no stranger to Persimmon Homes having worked here for 15 years from 2004 – 2019. She started her sales career as a trainee sales consultant and progressed through a number of roles, including sales office manager at the regional head office in Studley, Warwickshire, finishing touches coordinator, senior sales advisor and area sales manager from 2013. Prior to her time spent in housing, she worked in retail, including a spell with House of Fraser.
Vikki left Persimmon Homes in 2019 to move to a housing association that offered shared ownership schemes but returned to take up the position of area sales manager this autumn.
Commenting on her return to Persimmon Homes, Vikki said: “When the chance to come back came along it was too good an opportunity to turn down. I really enjoy working in the housebuilding sector and it is good to be back with the team at Persimmon. They are really good people who know all there is to know about housebuilding and do an excellent job for our customers.
“I also love the whole process of how a development comes together, from an empty field, through to a plot of land which becomes a group of houses and then seeing how people place their own personal stamp on their properties to make it their home is just fantastic. In this job we go on a whole journey with the customer and it is very satisfying.
“My time out of the business was not wasted as I definitely got to see another side of the housing sector. Sometimes you need some time away from what you know and end up appreciating it more when you return. I really like the way Persimmon Homes works and find we are so often ahead of what other housebuilders are doing with many of their initiatives, it is great to be back.”
Amanda Rogers, head of sales for South Midlands, said: “We are delighted to have Vikki back with the Persimmon Homes family. She has so much experience of sales in housebuilding and has an excellent track record with us and the industry. I am confident she is going to make a significant contribution to our sales effort in the South Midlands region.”
Vikki is born and bred in the South Midlands region and currently lives in a Persimmon Home in Bidford-upon-Avon.
