Our Accounts and Land Secretaries (from left to right)
We’re a tight knit team at Head Office, Worthing – and our work relies on the efficiency of our Accounts and Administration members who are a joy to work with, going about their duties with energy and enthusiasm:
Helen Moore – Finance Manager
Helen started work with us in 2013 and has responsibility for the Land, Lettings and Sales accounts. She oversees compliance within the businesses, working in collaboration with the companies’ Accountants. Her responsibilities extend to the accounting functions within the Group and overall supervision of the Accounts Team. Her work is highly valued as she works directly with the Business Owners ensuring that the companies’ welfare and future is guaranteed. Helen also has Payroll and HR responsibilities.
Samantha Hatwell – Land Secretary/PA
Sam joined Land & Brand New Homes as Land Department Secretary/PA in January 2013. Sam’s previous job roles included working as a personal assistant to a partner at a large firm of solicitors, which was excellent grounding for her work in our Land Department.
Sam has an interest in property and land as she has undertaken refurbishment projects with her husband, and tells us she really enjoys the hectic, varied and interesting role.
Gill Raimondo – Land Secretary/PA
Gill joined us in 2012 with previous work experience as a PA/Office Manager in architectural practices and the construction industry, where she dealt mainly with large residential developers as clients, but also collaborating closely with engineers, surveyors, planning consultants, etc. Her father owned a local construction company and her brother is a surveyor/developer, so land and construction runs through her veins.
Gill works closely with Sam to identify sites and has an extremely hands-on role working with the Land Registry, Planning Portals, Landowners and our many Developer clients.
Vanessa Light – FCCA
Vanessa joined us in 2015 as Accounts Assistant. Her role has evolved and she provides support in numerous fields – each day brings various tasks from Property and Estate Management, preparing supplier/client contracts, meeting clients, GDPR and Anti-Money Laundering policies and compliance – in addition to general Accounts Duties including Bank Reconciliations, Credit Control, and VAT.
