News: Marketing director John takes up new role at Rotherham housing regeneration specialists


A director at one of England’s largest social housing specialists has taken up a new role to focus on the major social and market challenges affecting the industry. Bramall Construction’s marketing director John Wilcox has started a consultancy role at the South Yorkshire-based company after retiring from the board in the autumn. His new responsibilities will see him build partnerships to develop housing strategies for older people, grow Bramall’s operations in eastern England and mentor other employees. "Part of my job is to look at how we can solve the future challenges of the housing industry by working to address them," said John. "The challenge of building housing for older residents is as big as that facing the sector in the late 1940s and early 1950’s, when the problem was availability of homes and schools. We are an ageing population, and our needs are changing. Councils, social landlords and providers need to come together to meet the challenge head on. I am looking forward to being involved in this work." During his 17 years at Bramall, 12 of which have been as marketing director, John has seen the company grow from a locally-based housing company to one with a turnover of around £140 million and 800 staff working from dozens of sites. Neil Baxter, Managing Director of Bramall in Yorkshire and the East Midlands, said: "John’s experience with this company over the years means he is perfectly placed to help us meet the challenges faced by modern housing providers."
