New investment brings Community Ventures into the family

Sewell Estates has announced that it has increased its shareholding in Community Ventures Partnerships Ltd to 100% as part of strategic growth plans.

Community Ventures is an estates consultancy and development company that advises on, develops, builds, and manages health and social care facilities across the north of England and Midlands.

Jo Barnes, Managing Director of Sewell Estates said;

“Following a very successful 12 months working in partnership with Galliford Try, it felt like the right decision for both parties for Sewell to buy their shares to take 100% ownership of the company.

“The Community Ventures team share our values, work hard to have a great relationship with their customers and really care about making a positive difference to public services and the communities they serve. We are cut from the same cloth, so it feels like a natural step for us to take.

“Our teams across estates have already been working with Nigel and his team over the last year and I’m excited about sharing our learning and opportunities to innovate.”

Jo added: “I’m delighted to say that Nigel Fenny, CEO of Community Ventures, will continue in his role along with his talented and well-established senior team. It’s a pleasure to welcome the whole team into the Sewell family and I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
