Story Homes appoints James Lambert OBE as non-executive director

January 2016


James Lambert

After a record year of growth with new schemes across the country, award-winning residential property developer – Story Homes – has appointed Yorkshire-based entrepreneur James Lambert OBE to the board as non-executive director.

The former chairman of R&R Ice Cream, Europe’s leading supplier of own-label frozen ice creams, has significant experience in supporting business growth and is currently chairman of Burton’s Business Co, Animalcare Group PLC and Wagg Foods Limited.

James will play a key role in his new position at Story Homes, helping to support the housebuilder’s extensive expansion plans and preserving its renowned reputation for delivering high-quality homes.

Fred Story, founder and chairman at Story Homes, commented: “As our company expands and evolves, it’s important that we don’t lose sight of our core values and current aspirations. James will become an invaluable asset to the company and form a crucial part of Story Homes’ successful future.”

The entrepreneur was recently awarded an OBE after transforming a small independent ice cream company with just five employees into a 4,000-strong, world renowned manufacturer with 10 production sites across the UK, Europe and Australia. R&R Ice Cream supplies own-label ice cream to major European supermarkets and has brand licences with Mondelez, Nestle and Disney.

Fred added: “With James’ vast experience in both leadership and advisory roles, we’re delighted to welcome him to the board and look forward to his help in guiding the company at this all-important period.”
