Springfield Properties, a housebuilder in Scotland offering private and affordable housing, has appointed two Managing Directors in its Private Housing division.
Dave Main, who has been with Springfield for almost 20 years, has been promoted from Development Manager to Managing Director for the North of Scotland (Private Housing). Peter Matthews, a former senior executive at Keepmoat Homes and Taylor Wimpey, has joined Springfield as Managing Director for Central Scotland (Private Housing).
The new managing directors are responsible for expediting geographic expansion by providing a regional sales focus and increasing operational efficiency.
Commenting on his appointment as Managing Director for the North of Scotland (Private Housing), Dave Main said: “Having been with the company since its very early days, I’ve seen just how much it has grown over the years, from the introduction of affordable housing to the creation of Springfield Choices and the expansion to central Scotland.
“The company has a tremendous ethos of employee development and excellence. Training is highly valued at Springfield and in a growing company there are always opportunities for progression if you deliver projects effectively. I am really excited to take on this role as we drive forward Springfield’s pipeline of private developments across the North of Scotland.”
Peter Matthews, Managing Director for Central Scotland (Private Housing), added: “Springfield is a business with a clear vision that over the last two decades has demonstrated its ability to sustain growth. Following its IPO, acquisition of Dawn Homes and now new management structure, this is an exciting time to have come on board. I’ve joined a skilled and able team that is focused on increasing sales by delivering what customers want. Springfield Villages, in particular, underpin long-term growth and enable us to design great places to live where a new community can thrive. I’m looking forward to playing my part in delivering this vision.”
Innes Smith, CEO of Springfield, said: “We are delighted to have appointed Dave and Peter to these newly created MD positions to support our fast-growing Private Housing division. The appointments highlight both the great pride we take in training and developing our highly skilled workforce and our ability to attract equally high-calibre individuals from outside Springfield.”
