The National House Building Council (NHBC) has appointed Niki Kyriacou as Customer Relationship Manager to spearhead its growing Build to Rent (BTR) team.  

Niki joins NHBC from Property Week, where she was Partnerships Director, and benefits from almost 20 years’ experience supporting property leaders to build effective strategic commercial campaigns. Her appointment is the latest coup for NHBC, which has made a number of senior hires in recent months as it bolsters its rapidly expanding alternative residential offer.  

With more than 80 years’ experience, NHBC is the preferred warranty and building control provider to the property industry. It supports customers across a range of sectors beyond volume house building, including Build to Rent, affordable and social housing, integrated retirement communities and strategic land. Its unique partnership approach involves early-stage engagement to help de-risk development and support the delivery of high-quality, long-term assets. 

Niki said: “NHBC is an incredibly well-respected business and I look forward to using my experience in strategic consultancy, alongside my network within the property sector, to continue to grow its Build to Rent offer. I have always found BTR particularly interesting; it’s an industry that is growing incredibly quickly, with a huge amount of innovation taking place and new and exciting ideas taking root. I enjoy the energy of the sector and I look forward to supporting developers, investors and contractors as they bring new schemes forward, taking a partnership approach as they make their vision a reality.” 

Tim Reid, Customer Relationship Director and head of alternative residential at NHBC, said: “Niki’s appointment is a real coup for NHBC; she is a very successful strategic consultant, with a commercial eye that will be of huge benefit both to the business and our customers as they bring new BTR schemes forward. I’ve no doubt that she will prove a huge asset to the business.”
