Two new directors for Solihull housebuilder

Sara Hope and Jon Watts

Solihull-based Hayfield has made two senior promotions to director level.

After previously heading up their respective departments, Sara Hope becomes human resources director while Jon Watts is promoted to procurement & supply chain director.

Hope joined Hayfield in the summer of 2021. With more than 25 years of HR experience, she recently became a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

She said: “People are key to business success, and the development of our people and investment in the wellbeing of all our teams are priorities for Hayfield.

“With more than 130 employees, the HR team is focused on our ambitious and comprehensive talent attraction and retention programmes, creating agile working practices and developing our bespoke, employee-centric, well-being programme, which was nominated in its inaugural year in the 2022 Housebuilder Awards.”

Jon Watts joined Hayfield at the end of 2021 in a newly-created role.

He said: “In order to deliver Hayfield’s five-year business plan it is vitally important that we implement robust commercial processes while being able to remain flexible with our supply chain.

“I am excited to develop our supply chain relationships as we implement a procurement strategy that supports the business in achieving its short and long-term objectives, and look forward to exploring and delivering some exciting new opportunities.”

Hayfield has offices at Solihull and Milton Keynes, and 10 live construction sites in prime semi-rural locations in Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Northamptonshire, Worcestershire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire.
