Say hello to our brand-new group marketing executive, Michael Hudson!

With a wealth of experience under his belt, Michael joins us ready to hit the ground running and make his mark within Avant Homes and the housebuilding industry. 

We caught up with Michael to find out a little more about his journey so far and hear what he has been getting up to in his first week. here’s what he had to say…

Welcome to Avant Homes Michael, how are you settling in?

“From managing how we handle customer reviews, to helping to name our latest development, it’s safe to say my first week at Avant Homes has been varied, interesting, and a warm welcome to the construction industry.

“My professional experience spans all types of industry including private tuition, office supplies, and textile manufacturing. I’m familiar with wrapping my head around a new niche industry, but I was a bit nervous when faced with the technical details of construction and house buying.

“However, the entire Avant Homes team have been incredibly helpful in getting me up to speed on systems, jargon, and who’s who as quickly as possible and without ever making me feel overwhelmed.

What tasks have you been getting your teeth into?

“From day one I’ve been able to use my experience and skills in marketing to assist with keeping the Avant Homes website up to date and functional. I’m a very hands-on person and it has been superb for me to be able to jump headfirst into the everyday tasks of Group Marketing, including ensuring branding is consistent across our regional offices and spreading the messages of game-changing living to our customers and beyond.

“All the nerves of starting a new job just melt away every time I walk into the office. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and I know that any question will be answered quickly and with zero judgement of how silly it may seem.

Now your first week is over, what has got you excited about working in the marketing team?

“I’m looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that will come in the weeks and months to come as I settle in with Avant Homes.

It seems like every day offers something new and I’m keen to get stuck in. If this is how diverse and entertaining the first week has been, then let’s see what weeks two, three and four can offer as well!”
