A NEW deputy managing director has been appointed at York-based housebuilder Persimmon.

Simon Usher has joined Persimmon Homes and its sister brand, Charles Church, at its York headquarters, with a remit to strengthen its regional property portfolio in North and East Yorkshire, York, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

Simon. 38, brings more than 14 years’ experience in the construction industry, including spending nine years working for Persimmon in other areas of the country before taking the reins of the Yorkshire office.

He said: “I am joining the Yorkshire team at a really exciting time. The housing industry is driving economic recovery and Persimmon has weathered the national downturn well. My responsibilities will focus on continued growth across the region which has already seen sites been launched in Selby, Retford, Easingwold and North Hykeham. We’ll also be commencing developments in Hornsea, Sherburn-in-Elmet and Harworth in 2014.”
