Lovell has appointed David Ward as its managing director for the North.

David takes up the newly-created director position with Lovell, part of Morgan Sindall Group, after a nearly 31-year career with Keepmoat Group where he held a series of senior roles and was most recently strategic projects director. From 2012 to 2017, David was managing director for Keepmoat’s Northern Regeneration business covering regional offices in Liverpool, Salford, Newcastle and Glasgow.

In his new role, David will drive forward planned growth across Lovell’s Scotland, Eastern and North West regions in line with the company’s national business plan.

Lovell managing director Steve Coleby says: “David has wide-ranging residential experience, industry expertise and knowledge of the market. He is therefore the ideal candidate to lead our ambitious plans for strategic growth across the North, where we are delivering an exciting mix of land-led residential developments, major joint venture projects and large-scale housing regeneration programmes.” Current projects include a £25 million development of 133 homes in Kinghorn, Fife; a £45 million, 200-home project with Homes England at Altcar Lane, Leyland, Lancashire through the Accelerated Construction Programme and Willow Grange, a £30 million waterside residential development in Doncaster, south Yorkshire.
