GLASGOW-based AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd has announced four new appointments.

The housebuilder revealed finance manager Gillian Quigley has been promoted to company director, while Simon Donaldson has been recruited to fill the new role of finance director. James Loughrey joins as senior quantity surveyor and Ainslie McCrone has been appointed as sales and marketing co-ordinator.

AS Homes specialises in the build of affordable properties for housing associations, and also constructs homes for private sale through its Briar Homes subsidiary.

MD Paul Kelly said, “Despite the well-documented economic uncertainties resulting from the health crisis, we are cautiously optimistic that we can continue to expand our offering of design-led, private and affordable housing. Gillian, Simon and James will play a vital role in driving forward the company’s expansion plans and Ainslie will upweight our marketing plans as we move forward with our second development for Briar Homes at Darnley, south of Glasgow.”

Gillian Quigley joined AS Homes in 2007 following an accountancy career that was mainly in practice with energy giant Shell. Simon Donaldson joins from McCarthy & Stone where he was regional finance director for Scotland. James Loughrey has previously worked for Robertson Partnership Homes, Engie and Mactaggart & Mickel in both social housing and private housing development. Ainslie McCrone has worked in the housing sector for almost 25 years, having been senior sales negotiator and sales manager at Allen and Harris Estate Agents followed by sales manager at Caledonia Bureau.
