Bryan Galloway has been appointed as Stewart Milne Group’s new construction director for central Scotland as part of its drive to deliver more than 500 homes in the region year-on-year.
Mr Galloway will be responsible for increasing the number of homes being built by the firm, which currently has over a dozen active outlets and is investing in land for new site in the Central Belt. Over the past 12 months, land with a sales value in excess of £100 million, has been acquired in central Scotland.
With over 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, Mr Galloway will head up an experienced construction team, bringing a wealth of expertise and knowledge from his previous roles with national housebuilders, Wimpey Homes, CALA Homes, Miller Homes, and, most recently, Barratt Homes and Avant Homes.
Gerry More, managing director for Stewart Milne Homes Central Scotland, said: “We have been increasing the number of active developments in locations with the strongest demand for the high-quality family homes we provide and Central Scotland is key for us in terms of investment. We are seeing a strong sales performance in our well-established homes business in this region and Bryan will play an integral role in delivering our strategy.”
Mr Galloway, who will also join the board of Stewart Milne Homes Central Scotland, added: “I’ve long been an admirer of the team at Stewart Milne Homes and am excited to be representing one of Scotland’s leading privately-owned homebuilders. This is a great opportunity to be part of an experienced management team who have a mandate to grow the business by adding attractive sites in the East of Scotland to its strong West of Scotland strategic land pipeline of developments.”
Stewart Milne Group is continuing to invest in new developments in the region, with plans to purchase land in the next 12 months with a turnover value in excess of £150m.
