New appointment at St. Modwen

St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, has strengthened its residential planning and project management team at its Avonmouth office with the appointment of James Wilson as South West Residential Land Director.

James will be responsible for sourcing and acquiring both short and long-term opportunities for residential and mixed-use development projects across Wales and the South West, as well as project delivery at St. Modwen’s South Wales developments at Glan Llyn in Newport, Hendrefoilan in Swansea and Coed Darcy in Neath Port Talbot.  

James has over 15 years of experience in residential development throughout the Midlands and South West of England, having worked for Knight Frank, the Berkeley Group, Hamptons International and most recently Persimmon Homes where he was Land Director for eight years.

Rupert Joseland, South West and South Wales Regional Director for St. Modwen, said:

“We are very pleased to welcome James on board. James brings with him vast experience and knowledge of the local residential sector which will be invaluable as we look to develop and expand our successful regional portfolio.”

Across South Wales, St. Modwen’s property portfolio comprises five development regeneration projects. Collectively, St. Modwen manages circa 4,000 acres (circa 1,250 acres net developable land) across the region on which it will build over 7 million sq ft of commercial accommodation and create circa 8,000 homes.

The company’s major projects in South Wales include the £1 billion Glan Llyn development in Newport, the £1.2 billion regeneration of Coed Darcy and the £450 million Swansea Bay Campus.
