Mark Yates moved on from a career in cosmetics to cement a successful career in sales.

Now the former national make-up artist for iconic brand Chanel is made-up to be building on that success in his new role as an area sales manager for Redrow Homes in Lancashire.

Mark, 43, has been appointed to the role at the division’s regional headquarters in Chorley.

He brings with him a wealth of sales experience, most recently in the property industry including Knight Frank, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) and latterly Barratt Homes.

He will be joined by Gavin Powell, 24, from Eastham, Wirral, who has been promoted to a new role of trainee area sales manager.

Mark will oversee sales at developments in Lancaster, Fleetwood, Garstang, Fulwood, Wrea Green and Whalley, as well as introduce new developments including The Pavilion in Poulton-le-Fylde.

“Redrow is renowned for creating quality homes and that is something I wanted to be a part of,” said Mark.

“It also has a reputation for looking after its employees and treating them well, listening to feedback which leads to a great team spirit and pride in the job which is paramount.”

Gavin, who has previously worked as a sales consultant at Redrow’s hugely successful Summerhill Park in Liverpool, will now oversee the smooth running of several Redrow developments at Banks, Buckshaw Village, Whittle le Woods, Clayton le Woods and Standish, near Wigan.
