Building on firm’s success
ADRIAN Sims has been announced as the new managing director of Linden Homes Chiltern.
He joins Linden Homes from Barratts where he worked for 17 years to reach the position of operations director, having been construction director before that. He will report in to Linden Homes South East divisional director Tom Nicholson.
Mr Sims said: “I’ve told the team I want to focus on perfecting processes behind the scenes so that the Chiltern region becomes an award-wining example of how to deliver homes efficiently and always to the highest standards.”
Originally from Cardiff, Mr Sims has a construction background that goes back to when he was a child and his holidays would be spent on site with his grandfather who ran a contractor’s business.
It initially inspired him to want to become a site manager – which he achieved at the age of 21, becoming one of the youngest site managers in the country. At 24 he won his first Seal of Excellence in the NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards.
“Being involved in my grandfather’s business has made me very aware of small businesses and their particular priorities,” he said. “It gave me an eye for detail and an awareness of the place building has in the community.”
