Norwich-based developer Lovell has welcomed Jane Yolland as a Regional Sales Director to its growing East Anglia region.
This new role comes as the region shows significant growth with numerous developments recently launched, including William’s Park in Wymondham and Crown Meadows in Newton St Faith. There are also plans for a further two developments to launch in the New Year.
Jane, originally from New Zealand, now lives in Peterborough and brings a wealth of expertise to Lovell after spending 20 years in the industry. She began her new homes career as a Sales Adviser and has since been promoted through the roles of Field Sales Manager, Sales Manager and Sales Director before joining Lovell.
Jane is currently settling into her role by meeting colleagues and visiting developments. In the New Year, her role will involve taking on the sales leadership and supporting the Land Manager with various land acquisitions.
Her work involves offering sales leadership support to the team, ensuring all aspects of the sales process are efficient, supporting other departments within the region and helping develop growth strategies, amongst much more.
Jane commented: “I liked the idea of working for a business that has a broad range of customers. Lovell works on a variety of projects, from open market developments to design and build projects, Joint Ventures and partnerships with local authorities, which was a huge appeal.
“The team has been so incredibly welcoming and supportive; everyone I’ve met shares a passion to up-hold the Lovell ‘service first’ ethos. I’m really enjoying meeting my colleagues and learning how I can become a valuable member of the East Anglian team during this period of growth.”
Simon Medler, regional managing director, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Jane to the team as Regional Sales Director and look forward to seeing her thrive within her role. Jane is an excellent addition who brings valuable knowledge and expertise to the business.
“We’re very proud to have multiple sites launching across the region next year, including St Edmund’s Park in Acle and The Acorns in Walsham-le-Willows. The East Anglia region of Lovell has grown significantly throughout this year, despite the challenging backdrop of the pandemic and we’re looking forward to continuing this success in 2021.”
Outside of work, Jane enjoys walking around Ferry Meadows with her two dogs and has recently been inspired to grow her own vegetables. She loves meeting up with family and friends, and is looking forward to hopefully spending more time with them in 2021.
