“I’m excited about joining Muir Homes and looking forward to working closely with Mr John Muir and the wider team to further enhance our position as a leading homebuilder of quality family homes in Scotland.”

We know his strategic vision and customer focus will assure the business has a sustainable long term future growth.”
