Spicerhaart has appointed Toby Lambert as its latest regional land director.
Lambert, 44, has worked in the property industry his entire career, and now specialises in land acquisitions and disposals.
His previous roles in housebuilding, new homes and land promotion have given him more than 25 years’ experience which he now brings to Spicerhaart’s Land and New Homes division.
Based in Milton Keynes, Lambert’s new role will see him covering areas in Bedfordshire, East Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
He said: “We know the challenges of the planning process and we know what discerning buyers are looking for. We’re also well aware of the impact the green agenda will have on the industry and I’m really looking forward to adding value to our offering, in addition to helping clients embrace those changes to ensure they stay ahead of the market.”
“I’m also really looking forward to being able to bring new young professionals into the business,” he added. “I was incredibly lucky to get my career breaks and I want to bring young people into the team to give them the chance to grow in an exciting and forward-thinking company.”
Tim Wardley, Spicerhaart Land and New Homes managing director, added: “We’re at the start of our ten-year plan for Land and New Homes and we are absolutely committed to making sure clients choose us because we’re relevant and flexible to the needs of the market.”
