Barratt Developments North East, which includes the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes’ brands, has announced several new appointments within its team, including the promotion of Finance Director, Christopher Brazell.

Chris, who joined Barratt Developments in 2019 as Finance Manager, began his career in facilities management in 2001, where he was part of the graduate intake for one of the market leaders.

The recent promotions within the Sales team will enable Barratt to continue to offer exceptional service at each of its Sales Offices across the region, as well as its Head Office in Gateshead, Newcastle.

Barratt’s Technical team has also been joining in the celebrations, with Kyle Dobson being promoted to Technical Manager, Dominick Martin who progressed to Assistant Engineer and Alex Blyth who has advanced to the role of Assistant Technical Coordinator.
