Linden Homes has appointed Mike Coker as its new managing director for the Midlands region.
Mr Coker will re-join the company after working for Linden Homes in Surrey at the start of his career.
He will report to divisional managing director Tom Nicholson.
Mr Coker said: “I have joined the company at the end of a very successful year for the region – which has seen the business deliver well beyond its budgeted performance.
“The main focus going forward will be to ensure we drive land through the system and make efficient and effective starts on site.
“Health and Safety, the environment and interaction with communities surrounding our developments will all be a key focus for us.”
Linden Homes is Galliford Try’s housebuilding division, which has a landbank of more than 13,000 plots and is forecast to sell 3,000 homes annually.
