Our Team

Sandy Kelly

Head of Sales

Savvy scouse Sandy is the fearless leader of the sales team, responsible for keeping track of its performance and – more importantly – biscuit consumption. A veritable fountain of knowledge in all things sales and marketing, she can usually be found loitering at external shared ownership groups.

Simon Pickering

Sales Manager

Sandy’s second in command Simon has been described as an ‘all-round laid back guy’ – which is handy seeing as he’s in charge of the smooth running of all developments in the North West. Luckily he’s used to pressure, as he once appeared in an old episode of Blockbusters.

Natalie Weston

Sales Advisor

Human ball of energy Natalie is in charge of all Onward Living viewings and helps excited prospective homeowners on their journey to home ownership in the North West. Putting purchasers at the heart of everything she does, the bunny enthusiast may be pocket-sized herself but she’s full of passion.

Dan Todd

Marketing Manager

Passionate about pork pies and promoting new homes, the team’s shiny new Marketing Manager Dan is putting his drumming skills to good use, drumming up affordable homes across the North West. This absolute rockstar once, quite literally, ran away with the circus and spent a summer juggling his way around Europe – which means the team never has to worry about him dropping the ball.

Laura Whittle

Digital Marketing Officer

The team’s digital marketer Laura is an absolute whiz on the web – and as a practicing vegan, she’s saving the planet while she does it. At the helm of the Onward Living website and social media, tweet the team about biscuits to get her attention.

Herbert Kanengoni

Sales Co-ordinator

Sales Co-ordinator Herbert is a good man to have around in a crisis – he finds the positive in just about anything, to the point where he’s been described as ‘almost too laid back’ on occasion. Aside from having an excellent name, Herbert’s always happy to help, loves new experiences (like his team Man City winning on occasion, am I right?) and is also a foodie and Formula One fan.

Suzie Bestley

Sales Advisor

Sales Advisor Suzie isn’t afraid to take things to the next level – whether that’s turning sales enquiries into happy home owners, or eating apple pie for breakfast. Plus, with regular tent-tastic trips away with the family and to an annual music festival, she’s the definition of a happy camper – and we guarantee a call with her will make you one too.

Shannon Slater-Black

Sales Co-ordinator

As a qualified Book Keeper, our super Sales Co-ordinator Shannon is the team’s go-to number-cruncher. Just like her favourite footy team, Liverpool FC, Shannon is a champion when it comes to performing under pressure. When she’s not helping prospective homeowners find their dream home, she can usually be found taking the purrfect selfie with her two pet cats, Lunar and Cleo.
