Doncaster homebuilder Keepmoat Homes has announced strengthened its senior team having promoted a new Chief Exec and appointed a new Group Production Director.

Tim Beale, who joined Keepmoat Homes in 2017, has been promoted to CEO for the Group having previously served as Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Chief Executive since February 2018.

During his time with the business the home builder has seen continued growth and last year posted a revenue of £555.6 million an increase of 31.3%on the previous year.

He succeeds James Thomson, who has stepped down as Chief Executive following seven years in the role with the business but remains on the board as a non-executive director.

“After seven years with the Keepmoat Homes I have taken the decision to step down as Chief Executive,” said Mr Thomson.

“I will remain involved with the business on the board as a non-executive director and am delighted that Tim will be stepping up as the Chief Executive Officer.

“I am fully confident that under Tim’s leadership the business will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Mr Beale added: “Over the next year we are focusing on our operations and plan to deliver over 4,000 new homes utilising both traditional and modular construction to help meet the country’s housing needs.

“We will also start on site on a number of transformational projects such as Sighthill in Glasgow, Ebbsfleet in Kent and the Waterside in Leicester.

“These developments are long term commitments to the regeneration of key UK cities and towns which embrace their heritage but build for their future – building communities and transforming lives.”

Keepmoat Homes has also appointed Tom Dwyer as Group Production Director. He joins having previously worked at Crest Nicholson for almost 14 years starting as Production Director for the Midlands and South West regional businesses before becoming Managing Director of the South West business.

He will sit on the Executive Board and oversee all aspects of the production process ensuring a positive customer experience and high quality across all the builder’s developments.
