Commercial Director returns to Jones Homes Lancashire

A familiar face has returned to take on the role of Commercial Director at Jones Homes’ Lancashire division.

Steve Speight has embarked upon his second spell with the privately-owned housebuilder, where he previously worked between 1996 and 2011.

The 52-year-old brings with him more than three decades of experience in the housebuilding industry.

Steve spent 15 years at Jones in his previous stint with the company, during which he worked his way up from Quantity Surveyor to Commercial Director.

Based at the housebuilder’s regional office in Lytham St Anne’s, he will be responsible for its financial operations across Lancashire.

Steve said: “I am delighted to be back at Jones Homes, the company for whom I enjoyed working for the core part of my career.

“Jones Homes has always proved to be a stalwart of the industry even in challenging times, boasts an excellent product and has a fantastic working environment, so when the opportunity arose to make a return it was one I simply could not pass up.”

The married father-of-three lives in South Ribble and is a keen painter in his spare time.

“I have gained experience working for a wide range of developers, from volume housebuilders to smaller companies with a focus on high specification, and I am looking forward to using this to help drive the business forward,” added Steve.

“Our aim as a region is to increase the number of homes that we build each year and I will be focusing on ensuring we have the strong financial position which will enable us to deliver this.”
