Build to Rent provider Sigma Capital Group Limited announces it has appointed four key new hires, following landmark growth of the business. Under its private Build to Rent brand – Simple Life – Sigma Capital currently has over 5,000 homes completed and over 2,000 under construction across the UK. The new hires will be involved in directly driving the growth of the Simple Life and Simple Life London portfolios, to meet the targets set by £3bn worth of direct regional investment.

“Following the acquisition of Sigma Capital by PineBridge Benson Elliot LLP, we set an ambitious target for the next five years. All four of our new team members are crucial to driving that growth, with each overseeing important elements of the business plan. We’re really excited for the next stage of progression towards our goals and we are proud to be in such a positive position despite the current financial climate.”

Graham Barnet, CEO, Sigma Capital

The four new starters will sit across asset management and development. Joining the development team are Kate Tuckey and Stuart Churchward, both appointed as Development Directors. Kate will oversee the delivery of the Midland and South West schemes – five developments in total. Stuart will manage the Southern region, working on the delivery of schemes across London and the South of England. Both have been appointed to help Sigma Capital reach its target of building an additional 15,000-20,000 homes over the next five years.

“Having worked with the Sigma London team during my previous role at Calfordseaden LLP, the opportunity to join an organisation with such ambitious and exciting growth opportunities was simply too good to turn down. I look forward to bringing my skillset to the team to assist with the delivery of targets.”
