Award winning site manager Gary Leadbetter has been promoted into the newly created position to work alongside fellow contracts managers Pete Giddins and Andy Ward.
Based at Bloor Homes' regional office in Holmes Chapel, Gary will be responsible for overseeing construction work at developments in the region's central belt, which covers Cheshire and the Wirral.
They currently include Eastham Green on the Wirral, The Woodlands in Goostrey, and Kingfisher Park in Somerford, where Gary's efforts earned him the accolade of regional site manager of the year at the 2015 National House Builders Council (NHBC) awards.
Gary, 40, who joined Bloor Homes in April 2014, said: "I have had a very enjoyable and successful time with the company since joining them as a site manager and I'm thrilled to be taking this next step in my career with the company. I'm extremely proud that Bloor Homes have shown this faith in my ability and chosen to promote from within the business, and I'm really looking forward to this new challenge. It's a very exciting time to be at Bloor Homes . The company is expanding, there are a lot of new sites in the pipeline and, as my promotion shows, there are good opportunities to progress within the business."
The keen golfer and snowboarder, who lives with his wife in Eccleston Park, grew up in nearby Prescot, just outside St Helens.
After leaving school, Gary trained as an apprentice joiner with a local firm before going to Liverpool John Moores University to study a HND in construction management. He joined Taylor Woodrow as an assistant site manager and spent 11 years with the company and its later guise Taylor Wimpey before the opportunity with Bloor Homes came up.
Gary said: "I was always aware of Bloor Homes' reputation for quality as their product stood out from the rest and it was something I wanted to be involved in. It is a privately owned company and even though the company is growing, it has a great ethos, a friendly environment and everyone seems to be pulling together in the right direction."
