Rick de Blaby named United House chief executive as Jeffrey Adams becomes chairman

United House has appointed a new group chief executive to replace Jeffrey Adams, who is becoming group chairman.

Rick de Blaby will join United House as group chief executive in August after eight-and-a-half years with property group MEPC.

At MEPC Mr de Blaby improved the company’s financial performance, as well as its re-financing, development activity and its customer care culture.

The leadership of the group’s two principal companies will remain unchanged, with Nick Stonley as managing director of United House Developments and Colin Forrest as managing director of United House.

Mr Adams said: “With a £1.2bn pipeline that will deliver more than 2,000 homes, we have a clear and exciting vision for the group on all fronts, which allows us to take advantage of the enormous demand for more housing in the capital, both as developer and contractor. 

“Rick’s appointment comes at a time when the group is moving into more and more complex schemes, partnership and new funding models, allowing the group to bring forward more schemes that mainstream developers would be reluctant to take on.”
