Deanfield Homes has appointed Robert Davidson as finance director.

The High Wycombe-based housebuilder is seeking to significantly expand its presence throughout the Home Counties and Mr Davidson will be helping set and deliver the company’s growth strategy.

Mr Davidson has been in both public and private sector roles and was most recently finance director at Rectory Homes. He is a trustee of the FARA Foundation, a charity which supports vulnerable people in Romania.

Peter Blades, Deanfield Homes’ founder and managing director, said: “This strategic appointment comes at a crucial time for the business as we focus on our growth plans. “Robert will be an asset to the team, bringing with him a wealth of experience in senior finance roles and an understanding of the unique nature of the housebuilding industry.

“His past experience in the sector provides him with invaluable knowledge of both our geographical patch and our focus on high-quality homes in aspirational locations.”

Mr Davidson said: “I’m delighted to be back in a sector that I love and with a company that has such a focused vision for the future. Over the last five years, Deanfield Homes has built a strong business with a great team and a culture which sees its people take genuine pride in the homes they build and the experience they provide to their customers. I’m really excited to be joining the business as it embarks on a new chapter.”

Current developments by Deanfield Homes include Deanfield Park in Ickford, Bucks and Deanfields in Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire and there are a number more in the pipeline. The developer’s business plan accounts for delivering 150 homes per year over the next three years.
