Gemma Hardy [square]Mixed-tenure developer Countryside Partnerships has promoted two members of staff to the role of managing director.

Gemma Hardy becomes managing director of Merseyside and Cheshire West, having served as sales director since 2021.

With more than 20 years of residential sales experience, she will be leading the integration of the region and working closely with the neighbouring Manchester and Cheshire East region, maximising opportunities across the North West.

Adam Sharpe has been promoted to managing director of South West Midlands. He joined what was originally Galliford Try Partnerships in 2018, progressing through the land and pre-construction department, where he most recently served as pre-construction director.

He will be seeking to build on the growth of the South West Midlands business, continuing to deliver mixed-tenure housing developments in partnership with housing associations and local authorities, as well as providing homes for open market sale.

Stephen Teagle, chief executive of Countryside Partnerships, commented: “Both Gemma and Adam have been with our business for a number of years and promoting them to managing directorships is testament to the skills they’ve demonstrated over that period. They both have outstanding leadership qualities and a real passion for delivering high-quality new homes in the places they’re needed most. I’m looking forward to seeing both regions continue to play an important role across our wider business."
