Thomas Alexander Homes Expands Senior Management Team.

Yorkshire-based housebuilder Thomas Alexander Homes has made two new key appointments as it continues to grow following the successful recent launches of two new housing developments.

Chris Warren has joined the company as Senior Buyer, where he will play a key role in Thomas Alexander Homes’ procurement process by selecting and qualifying suppliers based on quality, reliability and cost. Chris will also be responsible for negotiating prices, terms and conditions with suppliers to ensure they align with Thomas Alexander’s needs and objectives, helping the company to match its aspirations in a cost-effective manner.

Warren has held buyer, manager and director roles at companies in the housebuilding industry for more than three decades. He joins Thomas Alexander Homes following a brief period of retirement, having most recently worked for City, Town & Village Living LTD, where he spent four years as the company’s Commercial, Sales and Marketing Director, procuring a wide range of properties and developing them into private homes.

New Head of Sales and Marketing Gemma Bateman has joined Thomas Alexander Homes from Persimmon Homes, one of the UK’s largest house builders, where she worked for six years. Her final two years were spent as Head of Sales whose responsibilities included overseeing the company’s sales function and coordinating impactful marketing strategies.

At Thomas Alexander Homes, Bateman will lead the organisation’s sales and marketing functions and be responsible for ensuring it operates efficiently while also providing an industry-leading customer experience.  

Alex Blease, Managing Director at Thomas Alexander Homes, said: “Since successfully launching two new high-quality housing developments in recent months, we’ve been looking for the perfect candidates to grow our team and enable us to expand the business, so we’re delighted to have Chris and Gemma on board.

“With his vast industry experience, innovative thinking and familiarity with our company ethos, we couldn’t have found a more perfect addition to our team than Chris, while Gemma’s proven track record and her understanding of our target market will be an invaluable asset as we continue to chart our growth path.”


Gemma Bateman added: “The quality of Thomas Alexander Homes’ products, designs and specifications is truly industry leading so it’s a privilege to be heading up its sales team and I’m excited to see what the future holds for the business.”


Chris Warren said: “The flexibility and the overall feel of what could be possible at Thomas Alexander Homes are the main drivers for my decision to join the company and I look forward to being an integral part of helping it grow into an industry leader.”
