Worthington accepts Torsion resi brief
On the back of securing six projects worth a combined £38m, Leeds-based Torsion Group’s housing arm has appointed Ian Worthington as its new managing director.
Worthington, who previously worked at Torsion before spells with NG Bailey and ISG, brings with him extensive knowledge of both the business and the wider housebuilding sector, Torsion said.
With experience in developing, site operations and a proven track record at senior management level, he will be focussed on driving growth of the Torsion Homes business.
All six new housing schemes will target an EPC rating of B or better, said the firm. One of the projects is a 10-home scheme in the centre of Hebden Bridge.
Worthington said: “I’m delighted to lead the Torsion Homes business and see huge potential for growth over the next few years. We already have 2024 off to a strong start by securing six schemes with a combined GDV of £38m.
“We are now focussed on delivering these projects, whilst developing a number of exciting new opportunities and progressing the project pipelines.”
Dan Spencer, chief executive at Torsion Group, said: “We are excited about the growth of Torsion Homes, and as part of this, we have invested in attracting exceptional people.
“We are pleased to welcome Ian back into the Torsion team as Managing Director of Torsion Homes. With his existing knowledge of our business, combined with new ideas, we are very positive about the future success of Torsion Homes.”
Torsion is on the hunt for sites with 10 to 40 housing plots, with or without planning and brown or greenfield.
