Real estate firm makes two hires on back of strong growth

Social impact real estate firm HSPG has extended its Manchester-based team with two appointments.

Poppy Lockwood joins the company as acquisition coordinator and Mike Pearson as financial controller.

The company said the ongoing addition of industry expertise to its team comes as the demand for affordable housing across the UK is increasing. The housing market experienced a turbulent 2021, with house prices rising at record breaking levels. The price of an average house is now one fifth higher than it was at the start of the pandemic.

Lockwood brings extensive experience in residential lettings and sales property management, following her most recent role as head of lettings and development at Manchester based Homes4u .

Pearson brings a wealth of experience to his new role as financial controller for HSPG, coming from Kamani Property Group where he was the finance manager, working with industry leaders such as Savills.

Guy Horne, CEO at HSPG, said: “The welcome addition of Poppy and Mike to the HSPG team reflects the company’s hard work and recent growth over the last year. These appointments come at an important time, as the UK’s housing crisis and homelessness epidemic are growing. We are more committed than ever to building our team to help fight this.”
