Property firms strengthen teams with new appointments


Hayfield has boosted its finance team with new appointments as it looks to double annual turnover to £100m

Solihull housebuilder Hayfield has boosted its finance team with a quartet of new appointments as it looks to double annual turnover to £100m this year.

Amanda James has joined the team as a management accountant, Bonnie Cooke as an accounts supervisor, Lauren Williams as accounts payable assistant and Hayley McGorie as accounts assistant.

Ms James was previously in the funeral care division of Midcounties Cooperative and both Ms Cook and Ms Williams have joined Hayfield from the finance department of facilities management specialist Imtech Inviron, also based in Solihull.

Ms McGorie previously worked at Solihull-based Wattrus Group which specialises in building installations, soft furnishings and flooring.

Hayfield’s finance director Jim Thompson said: We are really pleased to have strengthened our finance department with the range and depth of experience that Amanda, Bonnie, Lauren and Hayley bring to the team.

Seeking to double the turnover of any company over a 12-month timeframe is a huge undertaking and the housebuilding industry has many additional complexities, such as multiple funding lines, grants and legal obligations, he said.

Having the additional in-house resource to meet the needs of the business at this critical period will support the work carried out by everyone based in Hayfield’s offices and out on site, he said.
