With a vision to build over 600 new homes each year by 2020 the growth plan for Miller Homes, in its Yorkshire region, is already being implemented with the appointment of a further sales manager.

Michael Goodwin, 30, from Rotherham has been appointed as a sales manager with the housebuilder and will assume responsibility for a number of developments across the region.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the most respected housebuilders in the UK and in particular in Yorkshire,” said Michael. “I am looking forward to playing a pivotal part in generating sales as our developments continue to increase in the coming years.”

Michael, who has worked for other housebuilders in a similar role, will have a varied role which will include managing sales, recruiting staff and working with interior designers to create inspiring show homes.

“We are delighted to welcome Michael to the team and he has already settled in well maintaining our service levels and driving forward our initiatives and campaigns in a variety of ways,” said Sarah Whinfrey regional sales manager Miller Homes Yorkshire. “To deliver our planned growth by 2020 it is imperative that we have a strong team in place and with Michael joining myself, Jan Hanaby and Natalie Moore I feel that we are in a fantastic place to do so.”

Michael’s current portfolio includes Honeywell Grange, Barnsley; Sherwood Croft, Thorpe Willoughby; City Fields in Wakefield and Brompton Fold in Apperley Bridge.

There is a total of nine developments across the region with a further one planned to open before the end of the year.
