Housebuilder Harron Homes has welcomed a new sales and marketing director, Alison Taylor-Shaw, to its Yorkshire division based in Leeds.

Alison, who lives in Wakefield and is originally from Barnsley, joined Harron Homes in November 2020.

The appointment marks the conclusion of a successful year despite the challenging backdrop of the pandemic, having launched a new website, several new developments, secured new land opportunities, moved offices and become a member of the National House Building Council (NHBC).

Starting out as a sales executive, Alison climbed through the ranks, becoming area sales manager then head of sales for other leading housebuilders. During her accomplished career, Alison was even involved in the creation of a brand new development company, Derbyshire-based Cameron Homes.

In 2017, Alison joined Harron Homes as sales director for the North Midlands business, helping to set up the then new region.

“Helping to establish the new region was definitely a career highlight,” Alison said. “It was an exciting challenge, a new team with new directors and team. We started on day one in an empty office and we grew the business into the success it is today.”

Her return to Harron Homes sees her take over sales and marketing for the Yorkshire division from its base in Morley, Leeds.

In her spare time Alison likes to explore her local area with her fiancé and three dogs. “Yorkshire is a fantastic county to live in,” she said. “Harron Homes is actively buying land in beautiful locations here in Yorkshire, which are perfect for people to live and bring up their families.”

“I am very pleased to be back with Harron Homes,” she concludes. “I think we’re one of the most aspirational yet traditional housebuilders – the homes are stylish, they have plenty of space for flexible living for the ideal life in the current climate and beyond. We build in exceptional locations and I really do believe they’re the perfect balance of luxury and practicality.”

“We’re delighted to welcome Alison back,” said Tony Lee, managing director. “The team is gelling together as a driving force, building on the foundations that are already there.”

“We’re a successful luxury housebuilder and we’re looking forward to seeing more growth – our aim is 500 homes a year by 2022. There’s a strong indication that the property market will continue to be robust and I don’t see why we should see anything to the contrary.”

Harron Homes has properties for a range of buyers available for sale in hand picked locations across West Yorkshire.

The company also works closely with local stakeholders to develop thoughtfully planned sites that really give something back, helping to support the local economy and its people.

Homebuyers in West Yorkshire are able to view developments and show homes by appointment only.
