The Operational Directors

Andrew Fryer

Andrew is Managing Director and a shareholder in East Street Homes (South East).

Since graduating from Reading University in 1980 and qualifying as a Chartered Surveyor, Andrew has gained a wealth of experience in residential development within the South East of England.

He started his career in land acquisition with Croudace Homes in 1981 and in 1992 he became Land Director for the North London Division of Bellway Homes. Andrew then became Managing Director of a division for Berkeley Homes before he joined Laing Homes in 1998 to establish and run a new North London operating division as Managing Director.

In 2002 Andrew formed a new company, Parkridge Homes (Southern) which specialised in acquiring potential residential and mixed use redevelopment opportunities, adding value through securing planning consents. Andrew's industry knowledge and contacts not only enabled him to successfully acquire sites but also, once consented, to facilitate their development efficiently, securing good returns. The company successfully completed 10 projects.

Andrew linked up with Tim Wheeler in 2011 subsequently establishing East Street Homes (South East) to continue the focus on new residential projects within Greater London and the South East.
