Morgan Sindall’s residential business has turned to Laing O’Rourke for its new managing director for South Wales and the South West.

James Duffet (pictured) joins Lovell after 14 years at O’Rourke, most recently as a commercial leader for schemes across housing, healthcare and commercial sectors.

He will take the reins of projects including The Mill, near Cardiff, an £100m development set to include 800 homes.

It comes as Lovell also appoints a land director for the North West of England, North Wales and Scotland.

David Carmichael moves after 13 years at housing firm Keepmoat where he was group land and partnerships director.
