Commenting on his promotion, Tim said: "As regional development director for the Midlands, I hope to apply my diverse industry experience to help continue to drive Avant Homes' reputation as a housebuilder with a difference.

"I've had a passion for housebuilding since my first day in the industry as a commercial trainee almost 20 years ago, and I look forward to bringing that same passion to provide the business and the regional development team the best opportunity for success."

Avant Homes Midlands managing director, Tim Brickley, said: "Tim has a real passion for the housebuilding industry and following his years of experience in the sector is more than up to the challenge of leading the regional development team in the Midlands.

"As the new regional development director, Tim's expertise will be vital in ensuring our architectural and planning functions are sound and achievable as we continue to drive Avant Homes towards further success."
