Developer Godwin Developments has appointed residential figure Simon Boreham to the position of Senior Development Director. Based at Godwin’s London Mayfair office, Simon’s mandate will be centered on securing residentially led development opportunities nationwide, with a particular focus on the Southeast.

Leveraging his deal origination, partnerships and planning expertise, Simon’s key responsibilities will be growing the business’ pipeline across a range of residential asset classes.

“I am excited to be appointed as Senior Development Director at Godwin Developments at a time where demand for homes is growing exponentially. I look forward to working closely with the team and external partners and continuing Godwin’s momentum in the residential sector on a national scale.”

With over two decades of experience in property development, Simon has a proven and in-depth knowledge of the sector, having held previous positions at the Berkeley Group, Wilmott Dixon Developments and CALA Group. Prior to joining Godwin, he worked as Land and Planning Director at Countryside Partnerships. 

Simon’s appointment further strengthens Godwin’s residential capabilities and will add to the business’ in-house Build to Rent expertise, led by Lesley Roberts. His arrival at Godwin will also allow Tom Smallbone to concentrate entirely on shaping its forthcoming Build to Rent platform as Acquisitions Director.

“We are pleased to announce Simon’s appointment at such a pivotal time for the sector. Simon’s in-depth expertise in partnerships and planning will be key to further unlocking this key asset class, and we are confident that through this expertise, we will continue to deliver and further develop across our key target locations and market sectors.”

Godwin Developments’ Build to Rent division covers both multifamily and single-family housing – an affordable homes team with numerous recent residential developments in Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Doncaster – and a strategic land division with sites each capable of delivering from 50 to 2,500 dwellings.

The developer’s commercial and industrial divisions work include recent developments in Birmingham, Northamptonshire, Staffordshire, Dorset and Cambridgeshire, alongside a strong UK-wide pipeline.
