Stewart Milne Homes has appointed two new directors to its north-west division.

Finance director Martin Conneally, 34, joins from Littlewoods Retail, where he was a commercial finance manager.

Commercial director Iain Carroll previously worked for the company’s team in Glasgow, where he worked as part of both the land and commercial teams.

The Scottish housebuilder set up the north-west division just over a year ago, when it bought the Nuttall Construction group of companies.

The company’s north-west headquarters are at Trafford Park in Manchester. It was founded in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1975.
