Gordon Innes, MD of Gilbert & Goode

Leading Cornish housebuilder Gilbert & Goode has appointed a new managing director.

Gordon Innes has more than 30 years’ experience in residential development, bringing a wealth of knowledge from all aspects of the industry to the St Austell-based business, including site acquisition, sales, and customer care.

His career has seen him progress from quantity surveyor to commercial manager, and then onto leadership roles at Avant Homes, Persimmon Homes, and Countryside Properties PLC.

“It’s a really exciting time to be joining Gilbert & Goode,” he said, “and I can’t wait to get stuck in with the team working across projects here in the south west.”

As part of the Ocean Housing Group since 2005, Gilbert & Goode builds both open market and affordable homes. The company is aiming to build 125 properties within the next year, creating a turnover of £20 million.
