Devon homebuilder Cavanna Homes has appointed Michael Newman as its new Head of Design.
Michael, who has 20 years’ experience in the construction industry, has been Cavanna’s Development Manager since he joined the company at its Torquay headquarters seven years ago.
He has most recently worked on the award-winning Fusion development in Paignton, as well as Primrose Hill in Torquay and Greenspire at Clyst St Mary, near Exeter.
He said: “I’m really looking forward to being a part of the senior management team here at Cavanna Homes, and helping the company continue the strong and steady progress it has seen in recent years.
“Construction has always been a rewarding and varied industry to work in. Cavanna have more than nine decades of experience building well designed homes for families across Devon, and as Development Manager I’ve enjoyed working with local communities to provide the new homes they need.
“Cavanna believe that it is vital to try to engage with local people throughout the planning process. New development can be very challenging and is not always universally welcomed, but by listening carefully to the views of local communities we can produce better plans to offer people the right new homes in the right places.
“Design is a hugely important part of this development process and I will be helping Cavanna continue to provide stylish and contemporary homes ideal for today’s families in some of the best locations in the South West.”
Cavanna Homes Executive Chairman Jeremy Cavanna said: “We always want to make sure that we have the best people working for us and seek candidates from across the industry, as well as investing heavily in the professional development of our own staff.
“In Michael’s case, we were fortunate in being able to find the ideal person for this role within our existing team. His promotion is a result of many years of hard work, and his knowledge and experience will without a doubt be invaluable to the senior management team as the company moves forwards.”
