London resi developer Regal Homes has brought in a new Head of Sales & PR, and a new in-house interior designer.
Trish Henderson joins as Head of Sales & PR from Taylor Wimpey, where she’s spent the last four years as UK and International Sales & Marketing Director and a board member. At TW, Henderson was behind branding for the developer’s new division – Taylor Wimpey Central London – and drove concepts and strategies for all developments. Before this, she worked for the Ballymore Group as UK and European Sales Director; Berkeley Group, Cobham as Head of Investments, and also at Berkeley East and West London as Sales & Marketing Director.
Derrick Bareness has also been recruited as an Interior Designer, which Regal is trumpeting as “a key milestone in the company’s continued expansion.”
Bareness was previously at Mixity Design, where he established the Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment (FF&E) department, and oversaw the implementation of Spec Designer – a comprehensive web-based specification software system, which was specifically engineered to help interior designers and FF&E departments increase productivity, keep track of every detail and save time by managing projects and providing remote access to data any time. His projects included fitting out Trump Tower Hotel and Residences in Baku. Pre-Mixity, he served with GA Design as a Senior FF&E Designer, where his projects included concept design for the Langham Hotel, Hong Kong, and FF&E design for the executive suites at the JW Grosvenor on Park Lane, London.
Paul Eden, CEO of Regal Homes: “Trish will be a very valuable addition to the Regal Homes management team. Her impressive portfolio of experience will help to drive the Regal Homes brand identity to greater heights and help the company to consolidate its position as an industry leader in delivering high quality London homes.
“Derrick is a strategic hire as we strive to strengthen the interior design component of our business. His impressive portfolio of high-end projects reflects the high standard of quality our customers have come to expect from Regal Homes and he will undoubtedly help us to continue to deliver London’s highest quality homes.”

I have been impressed by the company’s achievements up to this point and I hope that I will be able to add an extra dimension to an already very talented team of individuals and help the company continue this steady growth.”
Derrick Bareness: “Making the transition from agency to in-house is a strategic decision. I am keen to work with greater autonomy and Regal Homes is the perfect fit – offering creative freedom and flexibility. There is a synergy between the quality of homes they build and the interior design I deliver, which I will leverage to showcase their outstanding projects. I look forward to working with the talented team at Regal Homes and driving forward the interiors of the many exciting and innovative projects in the development pipeline.”
