Business analyst Laura Pepper joins the team at Genesis Homes

A ten-minute conversation with Genesis Homes’ newly appointed Business Analyst is all it takes to understand why Laura is taking on the Cumbrian construction industry.

This newly created role brings high level assistance in the delivery of the business needs, across all departments, through continuous support and review. Her newly created role at Genesis Homes is the first time she’s worked in the construction industry – and she’s already finding the industry a great fit for her skills.

Growing up and studying in Kirkby Stephen, Laura was delighted to be offered a scholarship for sixth form at Sedbergh School. A year out doing a ski season at Valdisere, was followed by an accountancy degree at York University. Laura’s first job saw her working as a management assistant for Penrith-based AW Jenkinson’s; a role which Laura loved and cemented her career plans. Four years working for Victoria Beckham in London followed, but a sense of missing family and friends brought Laura back to Cumbria. A short period at Edinburgh Woollen Mill was the precursor to Laura’s move to Genesis Homes.

Her work combines an acute commercial sense, understanding of the business environment and an obvious interest in the house building industry.

Laura commented “I’m delighted to be working for a young and dynamic company where I can get such an interesting experience working on high-level projects. Although the industry is relatively new to me, I have a varied experience of commercial business and it’s a great opportunity, which I’m delighted to have been offered.”

Nicky Gordon, MD added “We’re delighted to welcome Laura to the business and look forward to the contribution she will make to the continued development of our company. We’ve been pleasantly surprised with the success of Genesis Homes and we have exciting plans in both the short and long term, and the role of Business Analyst is fundamental in achieving these ambitions.”

In her spare time, Laura enjoys walking and going to the gym, socialising and playing hockey.
