Fife-based, family-run housebuilder Muir Homes has appointed Ash Sheikh as its new Sales and Marketing Director.
Muir Homes has been building new homes across Scotland for more than 45 years, and is currently onsite in eight locations across Fife, Aberdeenshire, Perthshire and Inverclyde. The company enjoyed a successful 2016/17, with last year’s financial results showing a £5m increase in revenues to just under £30m.
Ash’s role will be to build on this success and capitalise on Muir Homes’ growing reputation for delivering high quality homes and exceptional customer service.
Ash has around 20 years’ experience in the housing sector, and joins the company from Barratt Homes East Scotland, where he had been a Senior Manager since 2008. Despite the economic downturn, he was part of the company’s most profitable management team outside of London. Prior to his role at Barratt, Ash spent 10 years as a Financial Advisor, facilitating the purchase of homes. He also has an MA in Financial Economics and an MSc in Business Marketing and IT.
Ash Sheikh commented: “I am looking forward to working as part of such a successful, ambitious and forward thinking company, and am ready for the challenges and opportunities this will bring. I have worked all over Scotland and England, so have an in-depth knowledge of the housing market as well as regional economic trends. I also have particular expertise in creative marketing campaigns, so I am keen to work with the wider Muir Homes team to get started on some fresh new ideas.”
Alastair White, Managing Director at Muir Homes, added: “Ash is a fantastic addition to our team and I am delighted to have him on board. He is talented, inspiring and has a wealth of directly relevant experience.”
