Mike Quinton to leave NHBC

Following over four years as Chief Executive, Mike Quinton will be leaving NHBC at the end of January 2017. From 1st February the current Chairman, Isabel Hudson, will become Executive Chairman and Neil Jefferson, Business Development Director, will step up as Managing Director until a permanent successor has been appointed.

Since his arrival in 2012, Mike has taken NHBC forward and led the organisation successfully through a period of significant growth in the new build sector, supporting builders to deliver high quality new homes.

Following the announcement, Mike said, "After four years, I'm pleased to leave NHBC in a strong position and well equipped to face the challenges ahead. I leave behind an organisation making a vital contribution to the UK housing sector. NHBC is valued, trusted and relied upon by housebuilders and homeowners and I am sure the organisation will continue to flourish in the years ahead. I wish the management team and all staff the very best for the future."

Isabel Hudson said, "Much has changed at NHBC during the four years that Mike has been Chief Executive and the Board is grateful to him for the significant developments which have taken place under his leadership. We would like to take this opportunity to wish him well for the future."
