Welcoming Keith Churcher to Wavensmere Homes

By James Dickens

Wavensmere Homes is delighted to announce the appointment of Keith Churcher as senior buyer. Keith joins Wavensmere with over 25 years of procurement experience, which has included spells at Avoncroft Homes, Marcity Homes, Roofspace Solutions and Cala Homes.

In his role at Wavensmere, Keith will be responsible for purchasing the necessary plant and materials for all current and future projects. With his experience, he has already been able to establish a strong supply chain network and implement a structured buying function, which has incorporated structured prices and agreements. Keith has also been responsible for developing our internal specification framework.

With the industry currently suffering from a lack of quality suppliers and extensive lead times, any buyer has to be an excellent planner and strong negotiator who can build close working relationships across the supply chain. These are just some of the qualities that Keith brings to Wavensmere, and which ultimately make him such a valuable addition to the team.

“I have admired Wavensmere Homes for a while now, and I feel there is a real opportunity to make an impact here, which is very refreshing,” said Keith. “I look forward to working closely with James and the team to help drive the business forward, while further broadening my skills and experience.”
