Story appoints production director

Chorley-based developer Story Homes has recruited production director Martin Leake to oversee construction of new homes across the county.

Martin joins the company after nine years in a similar role with Stewart Milne Homes, with 35 years of industry experience overall beginning as an apprentice aged 16.

He will manage a directly employed construction team of more than 50 people, including two production managers, site managers and assistants.

He will also oversee approximately 100 sub-contractors working on Story Homes developments from Kendal in the north down to Preston and Clitheroe in the south of the region.

Martin joins in Story's 30th year, in which they will deliver 1,000 homes across the group.

He said: “Story Homes has ambitious expansion plans and a fantastic reputation for producing great streetscenes, excellent design and high quality new homes. They are a company with a clear set of values which I admire and I am delighted to join their Lancashire team."
