RODDY MacDonald is the new affordable housing director at Glasgow-based housebuilder AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd.

Mr MacDonald, who was previously development director at Sanctuary Scotland, has worked in the housing sector for 30 years including spells at Miller, Dawn and Ogilvie Homes.

AS Homes said he has extensive experience in managing large-scale regeneration projects, including the Anderston Regeneration Project in Glasgow and the Cumbernauld Multi Storey Regeneration project

He said, “I am very excited to be joining AS Homes to help them deliver high-quality, affordable housing across Scotland. During my time at Sanctuary Scotland, we worked with AS Homes on several occasions, so I was well aware of the company’s excellent reputation for delivering quality homes on time and on budget, which is something that is very important to me. I also liked the fact that the company is committed to giving local jobs to local people on each project. I am really looking forward to helping the company grow and in contributing to the regeneration of communities across Scotland.”

Paul Kelly, managing director of AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd said, “Roddy’s track record is tremendous and I am delighted to welcome him to our team at what is a very exciting time for AS Homes. He has a wealth of relevant experience, and his time with Sanctuary Scotland has given him an expert insight into social housing and regeneration. It’s already a very busy time for us at AS Homes as we get ready to start work across sites in Glasgow and Clydebank, and I’m optimistic that with Roddy on board the company can look forward to an even brighter future.”
