Linden Homes has appointed Tom Nicholson as Divisional Managing Director for its Eastern division, following the expansion of the Linden Homes brand.
Tom, who has worked for the company for 16 years, has held previous posts of Regional Managing Director and most recently Group Special Projects Director.
Alongside his new role, Tom will maintain responsibility for group strategic land, the development and creation of the national sales and marketing strategy, and group special projects.
“I’m looking forward to this exciting opportunity to deliver even more quality homes,” he explained. “The division is presenting a number of high profile opportunities for the brand moving into the new year where we will carry on our ethos of building popular and sustainable communities, and fully play our role in addressing the UK’s housing shortage.”
Tom added: “This latest evolution of Linden Homes not only exemplifies the growth and success we have had this year, but also our determination to maintain that significant progress.
“This is the result of a carefully conceived three-year plan in 2009 which built on a very strong financial position. It has driven us forward to become one of the few housebuilders which actually grew in recent years.”
Construction of two flagship schemes will get underway later this year. The first is the UK’s first ever urban Community Land Trust, set on the 4.5-acre derelict site of St Clements Hospital in Bow, east London. The second will feature more than 100 homes on the site of the former St John’s Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.
Greg Fitzgerald, Galliford Try chief executive,said: “Tom has played a key role in the delivery of our housebuilding expansion plan as Linden Homes doubled in size to becomethe UK’s fifth biggest housebuilder last year. I’m delighted to announce Tom as the lead for the expanded division and wish the team every success as they move forward with their exciting plans.”
Linden Homes has doubled in size since 2009 and its success has come through rebranding, providing confidence to landowners, and offering attractive financial enablers for first-time and experienced customers, such as the government-backed 90 per cent NewBuy mortgage.
