Stuart MacGregor

STUART MacGregor has been appointed to the newly created role of chief operating officer at Stewart Milne Group.

Formerly group finance director, he will move into the new position following a review of the overall group structure. Stewart Milne Group said he will work closely with chief executive Glenn Allison, with responsibility for managing all aspects of the group’s activities and in particular, overseeing “ambitious” growth plans across all its business operations.

The housebuilder and timber systems manufacturer added that it has seen “substantial growth” in housebuilding activity and timber frame sales over the last two years and currently has a turnover of around £300 million.

Mr MacGregor joined Stewart Milne Group in April 2015 after 15 years with Heineken, where he held a number of senior finance roles, including global business control director at the drinks giant’s Amsterdam HQ. He said,”It has been hugely enjoyable and rewarding to work with Glenn and the team in the last three years. As a result of the decisions we’ve taken to invest in strong performing markets, the business is now well positioned for sustainable growth. I am excited about accepting wider responsibility within Stewart Milne Group and look forward to working with the entire team to drive the business forward.”

Glenn Allison, chief executive of Stewart Milne Group said, “Stuart has made a huge contribution to realising the group’s growth strategy and has played a critical role in delivering innovative funding partnerships with the UK Treasury and Homes England which have helped facilitate this success. His proven commercial skills, combined with his extensive financial knowledge and business experience, make him the obvious choice to support me in delivering our growth ambitions.”
