New sales manager appointed by Vistry East Midlands
- 26 Oct 21
Vistry Group has announced a new senior appointment within the sales department of its East Midlands division. Laura Thomas has been promoted to the role of sales manager, based at the housebuilder’s divisional office in Peterborough, after joining the company in March 2020 as a part-time sales consultant. Her role includes the management of two sites in Cambridgeshire – Pemberton Park in Witchford by Bovis Homes, and Laithwaite Gardens in Sutton by Linden Homes. Both housebuilders are part of the Vistry Group, which also includes Vistry Partnerships. Laura, 43, has worked in the construction industry since 2003, and previously had two years’ experience as a sales manager for Stamford Homes – which later became part of Linden Homes. Laura, from Stamford, said: “I’m delighted to have been promoted to sales manager and am looking forward to taking on the greater responsibility that comes with a managerial role. “Looking forward, I want to significantly contribute to the division, particularly by ensuring that all of the sales staff receive the best training and guidance possible, as well as hitting our year-end targets and making sure that our customers complete on time. “I took a step back around ten years ago when I had children, and ended up working in part-time sales roles whilst they were growing up, so to be back full-time as a sales manager is a great feeling. “The team at Vistry has been very supportive since I joined last March, and encouraged me to take this step back up when the opportunity arose.” The promotion will also see Laura take charge of two further sites including Quantum Fields in Littleport and a new development at the Orchards Green consortium in Ely once they launch early next year. Laura commented: “With several new sites launching next year, it is an exciting time to be working for the East Midlands division. I’m looking forward to taking on these new challenges, and, most importantly, ensuring that our customers experience a seamless house buying process.” Nic Chapman, sales and marketing director for Vistry East Midlands, said: “Laura’s promotion to sales manager is richly deserved and we look forward to seeing her achievements. “With her previous sales experience in the housebuilding industry, we have every faith that Laura will perform excellently in her role and continue to aid in the success of the East Midlands division.” More information on careers with Vistry Group can be found at vistrygroup.co.uk.
