“The company is highly respected and is enjoying a period of sustained growth, delivering a wide variety of projects at sites across the country.
“I hope to apply the knowledge and skills I’ve acquired not only within consultancy, but also as part of a large, multinational organisation to help drive Barberry’s current and future development programme.”
Henry Bellfield, director at Barberry Group, added: “With a 2.8 million sq ft logistics/industrial pipeline, further residential and student phases at Bishop Gate in Coventry, and circa 600 acres of strategic land promotion, these are exciting times at Barberry and Jon has been recruited to support and enable the continued growth of the business.
“Delivery of the significant development and land pipeline under Barberry Group control and ownership is driving our business forward, with a focus on the key growth sectors of residential/student and industrial/logistics – ‘beds and sheds’.
“We are planning to continue to invest in all areas of our business, from people to our property investment portfolio, and our existing development pipeline.”
