We are delighted to welcome experienced property professional Jim Wood as Group Managing Director with responsibility for the day to day operation of Wain Homes.


He takes the helm at an exciting time for the business with 16 new residential developments launching this year across our three regions in the North West, Severn Valley and the South West.


Jim’s previous roles in the industry include Managing Director of Barratt London (incorporating the East and West London divisions) and the Group Managing Director at the privately-owned Weston Group.


He said: “I was looking for the right role with the right people and found it with the Wain Group.


“It is an exciting time to have joined the company, which has been transformed under Will Ainscough’s leadership, with an impressive portfolio, clear strategy for sustainable growth and a real commitment to quality place making.


“I am delighted to join a committed team of colleagues who all want to make a difference and strive for further success in the market “


Jim lived in Cheshire for 20 years before moving to London and returns to the North West where he will be based at the Group headquarters in Warrington.


He will also join the Group Board along-side Executive Chairman Will Ainscough, Finance Director Andy Campbell, Legal Director Nina Chesworth and non-exec Director Iain Slater.


Will Ainscough said: “Jim’s wide-ranging experience will be hugely beneficial as we continue to develop the full potential of the Group and drive the high standards at Wain Homes which has just achieved five-star builder status.”
