Ringley Group has appointed Ian Barber as managing director of its build-to-rent (BTR) division.

Barber has been working within the property industry for over 18 years across various disciplines.

In his new role he will help lead Life by Ringley, which advises investors and operators across the whole lifecycle of a BTR asset, from design and planning through to lease-up, operations and disposal.

Mary-Anne Bowring, group managing director at Ringley, said: “While house prices have grabbed all the lines, Britain’s build-to-rent sector has gone from strength to strength, with an increasing number of operational schemes and more investors looking to deploy capital.

“Ian’s deep residential expertise and strong network will help support our growth particularly in the North of England and Midlands and I look forward to working alongside him to bolster our presence in the build-to-rent sector.”

Barber added: “Ringley Group boasts a deep knowledge of all things residential and the firm has a forward-thinking approach to technology and innovation that will chime with many in the build-to-rent space.

“Working out of the group’s Manchester office, I aim to drive Ringley’s continued expansion in the regions while also supporting existing clients in the launch and operations of their schemes.”
