Beech Holdings has appointed a development director to continue its goal to deliver residential schemes across the north of England.
Neil Baumber joins the team after eight and a half years at Peel L&P as director of development, residential.
With a BTR pipeline of over 1000 units across the North of England and additional new sites in negotiations, Neil will be integral to bringing these Beech Holdings units to completion.
Stephen Beech CEO at Beech Holdings, said: “Neil brings a wealth of experience from working across huge residential schemes up and down the country. His excitement and enthusiasm for our vision and values were clear from the start.
“Neil can see how our City Co-Living brand is an exciting prospect for any young person living in an urban area today. He joins me in believing it can offer a quality solution to what is a housing crisis in cities up and down our country. We’re very excited that he’s joined our team and can already see what an asset he will be.”
Neil Baumber, said: “This was a huge decision to move, having enjoyed working with the Peel team to drive Peel’s residential ambitions forward, but right from my initial chat with Stephen I felt excited about this opportunity. Beech’s ambitions are admirable and I immediately felt my experience could support these goals.
“I’ve always respected family-run businesses and I see and admire those qualities at Beech; the values of the business are clearly embedded in every part of the organisation. I hope to support Beech to generate a national platform, not only because the delivered schemes are exceptional, but the ongoing commitment to the communities Beech builds is something that should be replicated up and down the country.”
Neil helped deliver a pipeline of circa 6000 mixed-tenure homes in his previous role, developed joint ventures and negotiated land sales. He was also integral to launching a BTR platform for Institutions at Peel L&P. With over 20 years in the property sector, he’s excited to drive the Beech Holdings’ BTR and City Co-Living product offerings alongside the growing team.
