Nicola Wallis promoted to Board of Directors

Mar 8, 2024

We’re thrilled to announce the promotion of Nicola Wallis to our Board of Directors, marking a significant milestone as we continue to expand our residential service offering.

In her newly-elevated position, Nicola will be responsible for providing strategic leadership in respect of our expanding residential development and management portfolio, following the launch of Scarborough Management Services earlier this year. She will continue to lead the residential sales and marketing discipline within the Group, working closely with the development team to deliver award-winning mixed-use neighbourhoods.

Nicola joined the Group in 2014, when she became the first employee in the Manchester office, responsible for launching our residential sales business. Since then, she has played a pivotal role in the success of several residential schemes including the award-winning, mixed-use neighbourhood, Middlewood Locks in Salford, and Hatbox in Manchester.

With over 23 years of experience in the industry, 13 of which were gained at Urban Splash, where she spearheaded the delivery of national residential sales pipelines, Nicola boasts a depth of knowledge and expertise across all aspects of new home sales, including branding, marketing, events, customer care, and developing strong relationships with both private and public sector partners.

Nicola’s passion for placemaking and community building has been a hallmark of her career, as evidenced by her impact at Middlewood Locks. Beyond overseeing the residential sales, marketing and customer care teams, Nicola has immersed herself as an active member of the community, taking the time to understand the unique stories and aspirations of its residents so that they feel part of a nurtured and thriving community.

As a dedicated member of the LandAid Northwest Board, Nicola is also deeply involved in philanthropic efforts to help raise awareness of youth homelessness and housing insecurity.

Commenting on her promotion, Nicola Wallis, said:

“Throughout my career, I have always loved helping people achieve home-ownership and building vibrant communities where our customers can truly thrive. It is therefore extremely humbling and gratifying that the board has recognised my commitment by placing their trust in me to drive the growth of our residential business forward.”

Simon McCabe, Chief Executive of SGI, added:

“Since she joined us in 2014, Nicola has played a key role in propelling the success of our residential sales and marketing efforts, and developing collaborative partnerships with prominent public sector entities such as Salford City Council and Homes England.


“Her leadership and expertise will become increasingly vital over the coming months and years, as we seek to accelerate the growth of our development and management pipeline, so it is with great pride that we announce her promotion to the Board of Directors.”
