Davidsons Homes has made two significant internal promotions at its Blisworth-based South Midlands region.
Paul Waterfield has taken on the new role of technical director, while Rachel Pramayon has been promoted to the position of land director.
Paul first joined Davidsons Homes nine years ago and has worked for the South Midlands region since it launched in 2019. It is his responsibility to oversee both the Architectural and Engineering functions of the region from conception through to adoption.
Rachel joined the company at the end of February last year. Dealing with both immediate and strategic land, her primary role is to oversee and secure new land acquisitions.
Paul, who started out in the construction industry as an apprentice joiner at the age of 16, said: “I am delighted to have reached this stage in my career with a housebuilder I value so highly. This marks my fourth promotion within Davidsons Homes, so I am living proof that the company encourages career progression.”
Rachel, who has almost a decade of experience working in land management roles, said: “I’m very proud to have taken this next step in my career, and would like to thank the whole group at Davidsons Homes for their invaluable support – particularly as I joined at a difficult time on the verge of the pandemic.”
The promotions will see Paul and Rachel take on greater responsibility within the business to ensure targets are met. Both say that their prime target is to support the continued growth and expansion of the South Midlands region.
Paul said: “As I’ve been with the region since it first launched, it’s a great feeling looking back at what we’ve achieved. For this reason, I am really passionate about encouraging its growth.
Rachel added: “It’s an exciting time to be working at Davidsons Homes, with the South Midlands region expanding at a fast pace. I’m most looking forward to working collaboratively with my team to enhance the growth of the region, and to continue building upon our impressive portfolio of site acquisitions.”
James Burnham, Managing Director of Davidsons Homes South Midlands, said: “Paul and Rachel were exemplary in their respective roles of head of technical and head of land. These are well-deserved promotions that will benefit the company highly.
“That these opportunities can be filled from within our own ranks is a testament to the talent we have on board here at Davidsons Homes, as well as a reflection of our commitment to promoting from within and supporting career progression.”
