Build­ing on firm’s suc­cess

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

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.”
