Nick Williams joins Red Loft as Senior Development Consultant
20 October 2020
Bringing a wealth of experience from across the property industry, Nick Williams has joined housing and regeneration consultancy Red Loft as Senior Development Consultant.
Nick will join Red Loft’s Development team, providing collaborative support to the consultancy’s clients which include Registered Providers, Local Authorities and private developers. Integrating himself into their teams on a project basis, Nick will assist with everything from land buying opportunities through to budget management.
Nick’s most recent position was Associate Development Director at family-owned construction company Mulalley. He spent 16 years with the private Essex-based business, where his initial main role was helping the Board develop their new build housing construction portfolio. Utilising his knowledge and contacts generated from the public sector, he worked directly with Registered Providers and local authorities, leading the company through tender processes and quality bid submissions. Taking the business to the next level with Nick’s assistance, Mulalley launched a market sale arm, Sherry Green Homes. Mulalley now focuses 50% of the business on new build residential construction and development through both contracting activities and its own development pipeline of around 1500 units.
Prior to joining Mulalley, Nick held positions at Newham Council and at Circle 33 (now part of Clarion Housing Group) in housing management, development and regeneration. In these roles, he managed relationships with joint venture partners, delivered S106 schemes and worked closely with private developers to ensure affordable homes were delivered to the required standards – as well as on time and on budget.
Now returning to his affordable housing roots as Senior Development Consultant at Red Loft, he describes himself as a ‘champion’ of the public sector.
Nick comments; “I’ve known many of the Red Loft team for a number of years and hold them in high regard. Red Loft has a fantastic reputation within the industry, offering a range of truly essential services and providing access to a great skills base for their clients. My heart has always been in the public sector, and I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to help people and organisations develop good quality affordable housing – especially in the varied and interesting roles that working at Red Loft can provide.”
Neil Jervis Red Loft Partner, comments; “Nick’s extensive experience across both the private and public sectors gives him a unique insight into both sides of the industry, understanding the needs and requirements of each party and ensuring successful long term partnerships. Nick has the ability to quickly assimilate himself into a new team, providing the necessary support and advice to drive projects forward at the right speed. He will be a true asset to the Red Loft Development Team.”
