He has huge industry experience and his appointment will further strengthen our management team as we look to ensure HBF is best placed to help the industry address a growing list of challenges.”

I’ve enjoyed a great career at NHBC and I’m immensely grateful to colleagues for their support over the last 20 years. NHBC continues to perform a vital role within the housebuilding industry.”
