HCA announces senior housing and land appointments

Senior appointments to lead delivery of high-profile investment and land programmes.


The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has today announced a number of senior appointments to lead delivery of high-profile investment and land programmes.

The HCA is establishing a new operating model with streamlined management tiers to enable it to speed up delivery and promote new approaches to housebuilding.

The agency’s new General Managers are as follows:

  • Housing Programmes: Jackie Jacob
  • Land: Ian Piper
  • Large Priority Projects: Terry Fuller
  • East and South East: Paul Kitson
  • Midlands: Karl Tupling
  • North East, Yorkshire and the Humber: Rob Pearson
  • North West: Danielle Gillespie
  • South West: Kevin Bourner

Mark Hodgkinson, Chief Executive of the HCA, said:

The HCA is leading the government’s drive to increase the speed of housebuilding and to promote new approaches to delivery. We have a strong track record of delivery, but much more needs to be done to increase the rate of construction through a whole series of measures, including encouraging new entrants and methods of construction.

We are putting in place a new operating model as part of a business transformation programme. The new senior appointments will be responsible for many of our high-profile investment and land programmes. They will lead flexible, expert teams that work with partners from across the industry to deliver more homes for people to own or rent.
