West Wales appoints a new Head of Land and Planning

16 January 2023

A new Head of Land and Planning has been announced at the West Wales region.

Ryan Greaney, who joined the company in August 2018, has been promoted by the region, after previously serving as Land and Planning Manager at the Penllergaer-based business.

Before joining Persimmon, Ryan spent the best part of a decade with Brecon Beacons National Park Authority as a Principal Planning Officer. Prior to that period, he worked as a Planning Consultant and a Planning Officer for a local authority.

Commenting on the promotion, Ryan said:

“I’m delighted to have been promoted to Head of Land and Planning in West Wales.

“Persimmon continues to go from strength to strength as a five-star builder, implementing positive changes in all areas, and ensuring we continue to deliver quality homes for local people.

“We have an excellent leadership team and our land and planning team works proactively and constructively with key stakeholders to ensure we deliver long-term sustainable developments for our communities.

“I look forward to ensuring Persimmon continues to identify and deliver opportunities which provide quality homes for local people across South West Wales.”  

Congratulating Ryan on his promotion, West Wales Deputy Managing Director, Stuart Phillips said:

“This is a thoroughly deserved promotion for Ryan, and has been warmly welcomed by everyone in the West Wales business.

“Ryan has made a fantastic impact since joining Persimmon four years ago, and has helped us deliver significant improvements in our land and planning operations, which will only continue with him at the helm.  

“He will oversee the procurement of land for new homes for local people across South West Wales, and work with key stakeholders to deliver sustainable plans, as we seek to deliver on our vision to be the nation’s leading housebuilder.”
