Kingswood appoints Gordon More as non-executive director

Little Hoole housebuilder Kingswood Homes has appointed Gordon More as non-executive director.

Gordon (pictured left) has spent more than 30 years in the banking sector focussing on real estate and general corporate sectors. 

He was seconded from his role as managing director of the Business Support Unit (Commercial Real Estate) within Lloyds Banking Group to join Homes England as head of investments in 2014. He took on the role of chief investment officer at Homes England three years later, playing a key role in building the investment team and leading the deployment of capital in support of the government’s housing strategy, before being appointed interim chief executive, a role he held for eight months.

Prior to moving into banking he worked as a graduate engineer with Balfour Beatty after studying for a degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Strathclyde.

Paul Jones, managing director of Kingswood Homes, said: "Gordon has a wealth of experience in the finance and housing sectors and is a welcome addition to the Kingswood Homes board.

"With his knowledge and expertise we’re confident of achieving our ambitious growth plans, helping us provide additional employment opportunities as we increase the number of homes we build."
