New hire for Durkan strenghtens focus on land acquisition across Home Counties

Durkan has announced the appointment of Bill Beyzade to the newly created position of Land and Development Director, strengthening our ability to acquire sites for new homes.

Most recently the Land & Planning Director for CALA Homes North Home Counties, Bill brings a broad base of experience to his new role with Durkan.  He has also held Home Counties focused roles with both Taylor Wimpey and Bryant Homes, and while at CALA he became the first member of the newly-established team in that area, helping it grow to a significant regional home builder.

While Durkan has historically focused on acquiring in the greater London area, this new appointment will enable us to scale up our land acquisition activities and identify sites in areas such as Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

Bill explained "Durkan has been developing great homes across London and the South East since 1970.  We've built a fantastic foundation in that time and have always had a reputation for building good quality homes in excellent locations.  My initial focus will be on acquiring and developing more sites outside of London and I know there are a number of great opportunities out there."

Danny Durkan, Executive Chairman, added "Bill brings with him an outstanding track record in identifying, acquiring and developing great sites for new homes in the north Home Counties area.  We're good at what we do at Durkan and Bill is the perfect person to help us grow our activities and reputation in this region."
