Taking over the reins from Steve Birch after his retirement, Mark, of Knaresborough, started his career as a Graduate Trainee with Alfred McAlpine homes and rose through the ranks beginning his director level career in 1998.

“The Yorkshire Region at Miller Homes offers great potential from a market perspective and, when coupled with the Miller brand and reputation I feel a real sense of excitement to be leading the team in Wakefield,” said Mark.

“As we implement our strategy for delivering further growth and continuous improvement we are confident that we can continue to build homes for future communities that can make a real difference and be the place to be.”

Miller Homes Yorkshire continues with its growth plans to deliver in excess of 600 units per year by 2020.

Mark continued; “I have always enjoyed my career in the industry and I would urge anyone who is thinking about their career, whatever their background or skillset, to explore what housebuilding has to offer – the opportunities are many and varied.”
