Ed Mears

Business Development Manager, Supported Living

From a young age it was apparent that Ed was cut out for a job in Sales and so this proved, as he secured a position within the events industry. Whilst progressing quickly to a managerial role, he realised that his passion lay elsewhere - specifically within the construction sector.

Using his sales skills. Ed progressed into construction recruitment and between 2017 and 2019 learned about the industry from the bottom up. Working in such a dynamic environment fuelled Ed’s natural entrepreneurial spirit and in his spare time he has cultivated a small construction portfolio.

The position of Business Development Manager at Safe as Houses Care came at exactly the right time for Ed. Once meeting the team he knew that the ambition of the SAHC proposition matched his own personal ambitions and since starting with the company in June 2020, he has not looked back. With the aid of our in-house Research and Development Team, Ed is focusing on developing Supported Living Projects in England and Wales, specifically looking to work in collaboration with key partners and Local Authorities direct.

Whilst not working, Ed enjoys spending time with his family, exercising and walking his dogs, Teddy and Bear.
