James joins Bovis Homes after more than a decade working as Operations Director for Barratt and David Wilson Homes. In his new role, he will be tasked with overseeing a period of significant growth for the company's newest region.

With a background in technical and planning roles, a key focus of his position will be the region's build delivery programme and driving the process of taking new land acquisitions and turning them into finished developments.

James Watson, Managing Director of Bovis Homes' East Division, said: "We're delighted to welcome James to the team. Having operated in the busy South East market for a number of years, he brings with him significant knowledge and experience, particularly of the development process in volume house building. His leadership in the Thames Valley region will be key as it grows significantly in 2017, with new locations set to open throughout the course of the year."

James Dunne added: "It's a very exciting time to be joining Bovis Homes and I relish the opportunity. The Thames Valley region is new and growing fast in a very competitive local market. There is already a hugely skilled and experienced team working to deliver big things in the region in the coming months and years, and I'm delighted to be part of it." 

Bovis Homes' Thames Valley region was launched in 2016 and is headquartered in Reading. It covers parts of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, north Hampshire and south Oxfordshire and has recently acquired new sites in Didcot and Basingstoke.
