Rowena Adams has stepped into the role at Bloor Homes regional office in Swindon, after four successful years as a senior sales manager for Barratt’s Bristol division and a nine-year stint as a sales manager and then sales director at Linden Homes.

The 45-year-old from Ashton Keynes near Cirencester started her career in the new homes sales industry eighteen years ago, after working as a hairdresser on a cruise ship, and has been climbing the career ladder ever since.

One of Rowena’s first jobs in the housing industry was as a sales advisor for Bloor Homes, a role she thoroughly enjoyed, so when the sales director’s position became available, she jumped at the opportunity to return to the company.

The new role rounds off a whirlwind few months for Rowena who recently got married, is completely renovating her home and is also busy training her dog, Bailey the beagle.

She is now looking forward to using her wealth of experience of the South West housing industry to aid in the growth of the division.

Rowena said: “My time as a sales advisor with Bloor all those years ago has always been a happy memory for me, so I’m very pleased to now be back here and leading the team I used to be a part of.

“I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to continue the tremendous growth of the region, and since I joined we’ve managed to launch nine new developments.

“As the South West division grows, so does the sales team, so it’s an exciting challenge to attract the right people to work for us and help us to expand the business, while maintaining the high standards of customer care we’re known for.

“Carrying out site visits in the South West is also an absolute pleasure as we build in such beautiful locations, often by the coast. From Totnes to Salcombe, our developments are in some of the country’s best locations so it’s fantastic to visit those and see how our homes are blending in to their stunning surroundings.

“The housing market is very buoyant at the moment. There are some very good mortgage deals available, interest rates are low and schemes such as Home Exchange give an extra helping hand to those with a property to sell. For anyone looking to buy, now is certainly the right time."

Paul Baker, Regional Managing Director of the South West, said: “Rowena has an extremely impressive track record and we are thrilled that she has decided to join our team.

“She has a wealth of experience in the housebuilding industry and possesses the enthusiasm, determination, vision and leadership skills which will be vital as we look to expand the team and the business over the next few years.”
