ROBERTSON has announced three senior appointments to its Residential Group business.

The new recruits include new CEO John Low, who will be tasked with growing the company under which all of the firm’s housing businesses operate.

John was most recently at Stewart Milne Homes and is a former chairman of Homes for Scotland.

He will be supported by two other new appointments – finance director Colin Mitchell and operations director Craig Smith.

Colin has over 30 years of experience across commercial property and housebuilding, including with Murray Group and Barratt West Scotland. Craig joined Robertson 23 years ago and has worked across multiple areas of the business, most recently as construction manager.

Derek Shewan, CEO of Robertson Group said, “Residential is an integral part of the Robertson business, with recent investment in talented employees allowing us to further drive growth and meet the business’ long-term plans. John’s impressive industry experience spans a variety of roles and a number of transitions in the Scottish housing market, leaving him with an unrivalled knowledge of the industry. We’re confident that John’s team, supported by the excellent skills of both Colin and Craig, will see Robertson Residential continue to expand north and south of the border by allowing us to take full advantage of industry opportunities.”

John Low added, “We have a strong team within Robertson Residential, and will continue seek opportunities to invest in and develop our staff. With an expanding presence in each of our selected housing market areas, we are seeking to further enhance our brand by putting our customers at the centre of each of our businesses and deliver quality properties which provide differentiation in the marketplace.
