At Taylor Wimpey, he looked after west London. For Galliford Try’s house-building subsidiary he covers Hampshire, Dorset, Surrey and West Sussex.
Phil Chapman will be reporting into divisional managing director, Andrew Hammond, and be responsible for overseeing operations from land through to customer service.
Mr Chapman said: “I have joined at a time when the business has gone through a period of change but is now looking forward and focused on streamlining how it can best deliver much needed quality homes. There is a clear vision for the Galliford Try business and for Linden Homes as the housebuilding operation; there is lots of opportunity to help shape the way the business is run. I am particularly excited about empowering the team to work together and celebrate successes over the coming months and years.”
