Former Homes England Chief Investment Officer Gordon More joins Housing Growth Partnership as Senior Strategy Advisor

Gordon More, former Chief Investment Officer and interim CEO of Homes England, has been appointed as a Senior Strategy Advisor at Housing Growth Partnership (“HGP”), the equity investor which is backed by Lloyds Bank and Homes England. Gordon joins HGP’s unique, 20-strong panel of highly experienced industry experts. Gordon will be available to advise HGP and its partners on strategy and support HGP’s expansion across the Living sectors.

Gordon brings over 30 years’ of experience in the banking and real estate finance space, having 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 £45 billion 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 £8 billion Affordable Housing Programme 2021/2026. He sat on the Homes England Board in 2021, and was a member of the Investment Committee between 2017 and 2021.

Gordon currently holds a number of 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.

Vic Hepburn, CEO at HGP, commented: “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.”

Gordon More, Senior Strategy Advisor at HGP, added: “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.”
