He joins Lovell - part of leading construction and regeneration company Morgan Sindall Group - from Jones Homes North West where he was regional director.
Lee, who starts his new role with Lovell this week (25 February), brings extensive residential sector experience and an impressive record of delivering significant, sustainable growth during a 27-year industry career which has included senior roles with Bellway and Wates Residential.
Lovell managing director Steve Coleby says: “Lee is a proven business leader with an outstanding track record of success in residential development and contracting across both open market sale housing and affordable development. I’m excited to welcome him to our team and delighted that he has joined us to drive Lovell’s continued expansion across the North West.”
Lee Sale says: “Lovell’s reputation for delivering quality new-builds and customer service excellence is matched by the company’s achievements in creating a genuine sense of community and lasting benefits for local areas. I look forward to working with the regional team to deliver our strategic growth plans for the region, helping the Government meet its housing targets and working with our partners to deliver the high-quality homes which the North West so urgently needs.”
Lovell’s current North West forward order book is at £385 million with the business set to complete more than 440 homes in the region this year. Major schemes include Shawbrook Manor, a £40 million, 200-home development at Altcar Lane, Leyland, Lancashire which will be the first North West development through the Government’s Accelerated Construction programme. Other key projects include a £12 million development of 105 family homes in Yew Tree, north Liverpool, for Liverpool City Council’s housing company, Foundations. They are the first homes to be built through Foundations’ c. £1 billion programme to deliver 10,000 new and refurbished homes over the next decade. Lovell is continuing work on Oaktree Grange, a 220-home, £53 million development at Clayton-le-Woods, Chorley, Lancashire which will create 198 open market sale homes and 22 affordable starter homes.
