One of the Midlands’ well-known property professionals, Stephen Rush has announced the launch of his new homes and residential property consultancy, Lion Sales & Marketing.
Based in Market Harborough and operating predominantly across the Midlands but available nationwide, Lion Sales & Marketing will work alongside housebuilders, developers, land agents and other property professionals to boost brand awareness, sales performance, marketing strategy and customer service skills. Core services include mystery shopping, market research, sales and land pricing reports, and campaign strategy and management.
“Although an independent consultancy, the idea is for Lion Sales & Marketing to act as an extension or addition of a housebuilders’ existing sales team,” explains Stephen. “We all know there are times when another pair of hands or fresh eyes could’ve proven beneficial, and this is where Lion steps in. The best results come from collaboration, and I take pride in building longstanding relationships which enable talented teams to thrive.”
A complete professional with almost three decades of property experience, Stephen has held director-level roles at medium and large HBF 5 star rated housebuilders including CALA Homes, Walton Homes and William Davis Homes. He has delivered award-winning marketing campaigns, company re-brands and successful award entries, as well as leading sales and customer service teams to achieve and exceed targets.
“My career has involved many highlights and memorable moments, from winning What House? awards, considered the ‘Oscars’ of the housebuilding industry, to using the original car from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to launch a development. However, the time was right for me to realise another long-held dream of owning my own business, so Lion Sales & Marketing is now live.
“Working with Lion will allow housebuilders to gain a fresh, independent perspective on a project, strategy or problem, backed up by considerable industry experience and an innovative, can-do attitude. I have the confidence of knowing not only what companies of different sizes need, but also where my knowledge and skillset will add value,” concludes Stephen.
In addition to its core sales and marketing services, Lion is also offering project management, change management, interim cover for director/senior management, and awards & PR support. Connect with Lion Sales & Marketing via LinkedIn or Instagram.
