Former Chief Investment Officer and interim CEO of Homes England, Gordon More has been appointed as a Senior Strategy Advisor at Lloyds and Homes England’s backed equity investor HGP.

Gordon joins HGP’s 20-strong panel of highly experienced industry experts and will be available to advise the firm and its partners on strategy, whilst supporting its expansion across the living sectors.   

“Enabling SME housebuilders to expand and accelerate their pipeline underpins the HGP model and is vital if we are to create a more robust and resilient housing market. The current environment for delivering new homes remains highly challenging, whether it’s regulatory, planning, financing, labour or raw material pressures, which is where HGP’s unique Senior Advisor panel can make a real difference.”

Carrying over 30 years’ of experience in the banking and real estate finance space, Gordon has held senior roles at Lloyds Bank, HBOS and Bank of Scotland.

Gordon joined Homes England in May 2014 on secondment as Chief Investment Officer, a role that became permanent in 2017, where he oversaw £45bn of investment activity. In 2021, he was appointed interim CEO to oversee the recruitment of a permanent appointment, whilst also leading the delivery of the £8bn Affordable Housing Programme 2021/2026.

In 2021, Gordon also sat on the Homes England Board and was a member of the Investment Committee between 2017 and 2021. He currently holds numerous Board and Committee roles spanning the residential and housing sectors, including Non-Executive Director at Hyde Housing, Sigma Capital and Kingswood Homes, and Senior Advisor at JLL.

“Gordon’s previous roles and continued executive support to businesses in the sector means he is ideally placed to work with HGP as we look to increase our equity investment into the living sectors whilst delivering great outcomes for local communities. He understands both the market need and the challenges that stand in the way.”
