SevenCapital Snaps Up Berkeley Sales Director
Leading UK developer SevenCapital has appointed Simon Howard as Group Sales and Marketing Director. Simon joins from Berkeley Group.
Simon will lead the global sales function at SevenCapital Group, servicing domestic and international clients looking to purchase quality property in key UK locations. His role will be instrumental in the developer’s expansion across the South-East and London, including leading the anticipated launch of their £500 million prime residential scheme in Kensington later this year, in partnership with MARK.
Previously based in London, Simon’s expertise spans more than 25 years in the residential property sector. The latter nine years he spent as sales director at Berkeley St Edward, with responsibility for UK and international sales across a wide range of developments, from small scale housing developments through to large scale, multiphase projects in some of London’s most exclusive postcodes. Notable developments in his repertoire include 9 Millbank and 190 Strand in Westminster, Ebury Square in Belgravia, Kensington Row, Oval Village, West End Gate and Wimbledon Hill Park.
Simon commented: “I’m joining SevenCapital at a very exciting time for the business, as they begin to scale and expand into new markets in terms of both development and client base. I’m looking forward to bringing my knowledge and expertise to the team and playing a key part in delivering some very exciting developments to new and existing clients in the coming years.”
Angus Michie, Managing Director at SevenCapital, added: “Simon is a fantastic, high-calibre addition to the business, who will, alongside the extra skills added within our marketing team, really help to drive the business forward as we work to meet and exceed our ambitious growth plans.
“We have made some incredible headway into new locations over the past 12 months and are gearing up for some very exciting new development launches in the coming months which, with this very strong team in place, I have no doubt will be a huge success.”
