Muir Homes appoints new commercial manager

FIFE-based Muir Homes has strengthened its team with the appointment of JP Kerr as commercial manager.

Mr Kerr joins the family-run housebuilder from a similar role at Everwarm, where he worked as senior commercial manager.

Prior to this, he spent five years with Robertson Partnership Homes Ltd where he started as a senior quantity surveyor. He began his career at Lovell Partnership Homes, part of the Morgan Sindall Group, and worked there for eight years.

His appointment follows Derek Bertram recently joining as new construction manager and Gordon Cunningham as technical director.

The firm said that the recruitment drive comes as it looks to continue to expand across Scotland. Muir Homes is currently active on seven sites across the country.

Commenting on the two new appointments, Paul McKay, MD of Muir Homes, said, “This is another success for our rapidly growing team at Muir Homes and we are delighted to welcome JP onboard.

“JP brings great commercial experience in the housebuilding industry and together with the recent appointment of Derek and Gordon, their diverse skill sets bolster our incredible team of people at Muir Homes. I am certain that they will all play a crucial role that will underpin the success of the company as we continue to take on new contracts across Scotland.”

JP Kerr added, “It is great to join a family-run housebuilder at such an exciting time for the company. I am passionate about delivering excellent service to clients and I am looking forward to working with the highly experienced team at Muir Homes to achieve great results as the business continues to expand across the central belt.”
