New Senior Appointments Take Linden Homes In New Direction
17 Oct 2016

Tom Nicholson and Andrew Hammond have both been promoted to Divisional Chairman, East and Divisional Chairman, West for Linden Homes, respectively. These newly created positions are central to Linden Homes’ business strategy and will see Tom and Andrew on the Galliford Try Group Executive Board.

In their new roles, Tom and Andrew will have full operational responsibility for Linden Homes.

Tom joined the company in 1996 and was previously Divisional Managing Director, East. Joining Linden Homes in April 2015, Andrew’s previous role was Divisional Managing Director, West. As Divisional Chairmen, Tom and Andrew will deliver sustainable profit growth by continuing to drive operational efficiency and high levels of customer service.

The appointments come as Linden Homes looks to refocus its attention on increasing outputs to a forecasted 4,000 homes per year and driving growth beyond the South in the Midlands, West, Thames Valley and North, where Linden Homes opened a second business last year, building on the acquisition of Shepherd Homes.

Peter Truscott, Galliford Try Chief Executive commented: “Linden Homes has been moving towards a more streamlined business model for some time with a view to making the company more efficient and better able to provide our customers with the high standard of quality homes that they want.

“To support this strategy, the promotions of Tom and Andrew will allow us to capitalise on their many years of experience, increasing our focus on operational excellence and driving our growth strategy in housebuilding which is centred on simplification, standardised processes and devolved responsibility.

“I’m delighted to welcome both Tom and Andrew to the Group Executive Board and wish them all the best in their exciting yet challenging new roles.”
