Moda Living announces 13 new hires

Moda Living has made 13 appointments in the last month to support its growth, including four senior hires.

Among the new senior members who have joined are Andre Bogle, Greg Bailey and Lara Rushby, who were all hired as project directors.

Andre joins from Berkeley Homes, where he worked as commercial project director. 

Prior to this, he held positions at Hadley Property Group, Urbanest UK Ltd and EY. 

Greg was formerly a project director at Allied London and spent his earlier career at De Trafford and Select Property Group.

Lara joins the BTR developer and operator from BY Development Limited, where she was head of project management.

Before this, she spent six years working at Quintain.

The fourth senior hire is Amanda Rennie, who has been appointed as general manager for Moda’s new Scottish neighbourhood.

She was most recently general manager at Citizen M Hotels, where she spent a decade running its hotel, inducting new general managers into the business. 

She brings a wealth of hospitality experience and will be responsible for delivering customer service and resident engagement, recruitment and on-site training, as well as operations and service delivery.

Moda Living has also appointed Paul Holcroft as a development executive, Chris Trunkfield as a design architect, and Max Verity as a finance analyst, who all join the business at its Harrogate HQ. 

Paul, who was previously at S Harrison Developments, will be responsible for bringing forward Moda projects across the UK through the development phase.

Meanwhile, Chris, who had formerly worked at SimpsonHaugh Architects on several large-scale schemes, will be working on projects across the Moda portfolio, helping to develop the company’s sustainability and low-carbon strategies.

Max joins Moda from Evergreen Energy and will be responsible for supporting project appraisals of large city centre residential and urban regeneration schemes and data analysis.

In addition, the firm has welcomed Camilla Beese as a data analyst, Eleanor Trigwell as a marketing campaigns manager, and George Molloy as a finance manager — joining the ranks within the Moda life management division.

In their new roles, Camilla will analyse and report on all data driven from asset level leasing and operations to help drive performance, identify challenges, trends and areas for Moda to improve and outperform, while Eleanor will run regional and national lead generation marketing campaigns to drive brand awareness and generate enquiries, as well as develop and manage multi-channel activation plans. 
Meanwhile, George will primarily oversee the accounts for Moda neighbourhoods.

Moda’s on-site team at The Lexington in Liverpool has also expanded with the addition of Louise Almond and Kevin Essery, who take up the positions of lettings manager and resident engagement manager, respectively, while Kathryn Souter joins the ranks at Angel Garden’s in Manchester as the neighbourhood’s night concierge.

Johnny Caddick, chief executive at Moda Living, said: “The Moda business is growing significantly, and these 13 appointments reflect that growth and our capability to deliver best-in-class rental homes across the UK. 

“One focus for 2021 is to further grow our team to match and support our ambitions. 

“These key appointments will help us lead the way in the UK’s living sector as we continue to deliver professionally managed, tech-driven communities, with world class customer experience, providing residents with an attractive lifestyle and a secure alternative to homeownership.”
