Leading independent housebuilder and timber systems manufacturer, Stewart Milne Group, has made two new board appointments.
Clive Fenton and Martyn Everett have been appointed as non-executive directors, following the retirement of Tim Redburn and Hugh Mackay.
Having been at the helm of McCarthy & Stone and with many years’ experience as a main board director of Barratt plc, Mr Fenton brings extensive knowledge of the housebuilder sector.
A highly experienced finance director, Mr Everett has held executive and non-executive directorships in a number of sectors including housebuilding, engineering, retail and media. He has been the chairman of Redhall Group plc since 2014.
With a turnover of more than £280m, Stewart Milne Group is an independent family-owned housebuilder, head-quartered in Aberdeen with major developments across Scotland and North-west England. The group’s timberframe business, with factories in Aberdeen and Witney, Oxfordshire, is the leader in providing modern methods of construction solutions to the UK house building industry.
Recently appointed chief executive, Stuart MacGregor, said: “These two appointments will strengthen and reinvigorate our board. We’re now three years into our ambitious five year growth plans which have seen us boldly push forward with geographical expansion to secure a more balanced portfolio of developments in regions where demand is strong. Clive and Martyn’s combined business experience and expertise in construction and house building will be a welcome addition as we meet our five year targets and set fresh objectives for our next five year plan.
“We’d like to acknowledge and thank our two retiring board members for their contribution. Hugh, in particular, has been a part of the business almost since the beginning and has played a valuable role in shaping the successful business we have today. We wish them all the best for the future.”
