Barratt Developments, which includes Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes has appointed Jon Green as managing director for its Southampton-based division.

Jon, who joined the housebuilder in 1995 as a site manager, has been promoted from construction director.

His appointment follows Barratt’s recent trading update which reported strong trading and forward sales at record levels.

“Trading since the beginning of the year has been strong driven by good customer demand for our high quality new homes and an attractive lending environment,” said Jon.

“We are proud to have been awarded five stars for customer satisfaction for the ninth consecutive year, reflecting our commitment to industry-leading quality and customer service."
