Leading south coast developer, Highwood, appoints Guy Hayward Managing Director

Highwood Homes has appointed Guy Hayward Managing Director following a remarkable year for the organisation that has seen fortunes thrive and its market position flourish amid a series of high profile projects.

Former Managing Director of Highwood Construction, Hayward has over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry and joined the group following a move from Balfour Beatty where he developed the high profile Mansell Homes housing brand that delivered over 3500 homes across the South.

 His appointment as Highwood Homes MD is seen as recognition for his exceptional success at the helm of Highwood Construction as Group Director Nigel Meek revealed.

‘Guy has made outstanding progress leading our Construction division,’ he explained. ‘We’ve seen turnover increase substantially in a very short period of time, which is a tremendous achievement. Guy’s unparalleled experience in the residential sales sector and the tenacity with which he leads made him a perfect fit for his new role as Managing Director of Highwood Homes.’

Hayward, too, is justifiably proud of the good fortunes that Highwood has experienced under his command.

 ‘Naturally, I’m delighted that Highwood has recognised my efforts,’ he commented. ‘Highwood is in the midst of a period of very impressive growth, not least thanks to some superb new opportunities, including the landmark North Stoneham Park development that’s now underway. I now want to focus on building on the successes the Group has enjoyed and using my expertise to ensure our future continues to develop and prosper.’
