Hannah Deverell Returns To Richborough After 10 Years In New Disposals Director Role

22 March 2024

A land and housebuilding expert who started her career at land promotion firm Richborough ten years ago has returned to the company.

Hannah Deverell has rejoined the Birmingham-based company as Disposals Director, where she oversees the sale of land to residential and commercial development partners. 

Most recently Hannah worked at Keepmoat as Senior Land and Partnerships Manager, and before that was at Ilke Homes and Redrow Homes. She first joined Richborough in 2014 in a business support role, and worked her way up to the post of Land and Planning Manager, with Richborough supporting her though a master’s degree in Environmental and Spatial Planning.

Hannah said: “I knew very little about the industry when I started at Richborough 10 years ago, but their support kickstarted a brilliant career journey and I’m thrilled to be back where it all began. Everyone continues to be super approachable, friendly and passionate about the business. 

“Richborough is undergoing exciting growth which will have a huge impact in the delivery of much-needed future housing and development. This new role allows me to utilise my past experience of managing and acquiring land to efficiently and effectively manage disposals, ensuring the best service and value for all parties.”

Jordan Gresham, Group Disposals Director at Richborough, said: “Known as the Richborough Way, Richborough goes the extra mile to design future schemes that are high-quality, deliverable and leave a lasting legacy, and Hannah’s in-depth disposals knowledge will enhance this process.

“Her well-rounded experience together with her resolute demeanour make her a stellar addition to the team.”
