Pickering to Design Director as Davidsons expand

Iain Pickering has been promoted to the board of Davidsons, the Ibstock based home builder. He becomes Design Director overseeing all home and development design.

He held a group design role at David Wilson Homes, helping to develop new product ranges for use around the country, before joining Davidsons when they started up 5 years ago. He has been key to the introduction of new home styles and development layouts at the company. Iain said “I’m delighted to have become Design Director and to be heading an expanding team. We are currently looking at how we might introduce more landscape driven designs into our developments – we believe strongly in the idea of place making, creating somewhere safe and comfortable, and not just in building houses”.

Jason Glover, Operations Director, said “Iain has played an important role in Davidsons growth and this appointment recognises this. It comes at a time of significant expansion for us. We have recently opened a new development at Anstey which is selling well, and our first Ibstock development will be launched in a few weeks time. There are a number of other developments coming through over the next few months and we are looking for further expansion, particularly in the South Midlands. The market has improved considerably in recent weeks and the Government’s Help to Buy scheme has contributed to this”.

Davidsons currently has 8 developments across Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire.
