Connells appoints new land manager in South West
18 August 2011
Award-winning Land & New Homes operator Connells is pleased to announce the appointment of Jonny Dodd as Land Manager, effective immediately.
As part of his new role, Jonny will be advising Connells clients on land sales and acquisitions, as well as residential development projects across Bristol, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
Jonny joins Connells with over thirteen years experience in the land business. Most recently, he was Land Manager for an international property development and investment company. Prior to that, Jonny was with a leading property consultancy where he advised developers and land owners on the disposal and acquisition of residential sites across the south-west of England.
“I am delighted to take up my new role as Land Manager for Connells in the south-west,” says Jonny. “Connells has a strong presence in the land and new homes market, so I am looking forward to building upon this and helping to grow our land business in my areas.”
Since the beginning of this year, Connells has seen some positive activity from house builders, with many either re-entering or extending their land buying activity.
“In 2011, Connells has seen a huge surge in its new homes sales which rose 44 per cent in the second quarter of the year compared to 2010,” Jonny continues. “This is translating to greater interest and activity in the land market and Connells is perfectly placed to help house builders get the most out of their land acquisitions and take advantage of the upturn in sales.”
