We Are Delighted to Welcome Two New Directors to the Team

We are delighted to welcome two new directors who will head up the planning and land teams

Ryan James has been recruited as Land Director while Neil Lewis joins as Planning Director. Both have extensive experience in both the public and private development sector and will be based at our head office at Birchwood.

Managing Director Angela Heaney, said: “Over the last 12 months we have been recruiting dynamic people with the right skills and ethos to help Wain Estates achieve its national growth.

“The coming 12 months will see major assets progressed and brought to market and we are equally ambitious to continue to acquire new sites across England. 

“Ryan and Neil both have the experience and vision to help us do this in the most positive and productive way and I am extremely pleased we now have an impressive team in place.”

Ryan, who joins from Equans UK & Ireland, previously worked with Knowsley Borough Council helping to deliver the authority’s successful local plan.

He said: “This is a hugely exciting opportunity offering a national role within a very focussed team. 

“Wain Estates has a unique ethos and USP, offering a full service to land owners and the ability to make swift decisions with a lack of red tape.

“The portfolio of land has grown significantly in the last few years and as these opportunities are brought forward, that pipeline needs to be replenished.”

Neil will use his extensive experience in strategic planning to help create legacy developments that greatly benefit communities. 

He said: “As well as working with the whole Wain Estates team on some exciting projects, I am really impressed with the culture of the business, its commitment to staff and contribution to the communities where it works. That team approach runs through everything we do and is hugely rewarding for everyone.”
