Joanne Jamieson takes up post as housing firm launches new PRS division


Former Wates Residential managing director Joanne Jamieson has been appointed to head up the North and Midlands operation of housebuilder and refurb specialist United Living.

Jamieson (pictured) had been with Wates in a variety of roles since 1997 and replaces Charlie Dunn, who ran United Living’s North and Midlands division for three years.

Dunn is moving over to become managing director of United Living’s new private rental sector business, United City Living.

Ian Burnett, United Living’s chief executive, said the new operation would be able to take advantage of growth in the private rented sector market.

“We’ve tasked [Jamieson] to further build on the refurbishment and new build work that we’ve been delivering in the Midlands and North for our current housing association clients.”

Last year United Living, which was formed via the merger of Bullock Construction and United House in September 2014, reported pre-tax profit of £6.4m on turnover of £181m.
