Kier appoints new Partnership Homes md

Kier has appointed Chris King as the managing director for its Partnership Homes division.

King will join Kier today from Lovell Partnership Homes where he was managing director for its Midlands region.

His appointment follows a recent restructure of the business.

King, who will be based in Tempsford, Bedfordshire, will be asked to build on the the existing private and social housing businesses to create a successful division offering mixed tenure housing over a range of developments and geographical areas. 

Kier Group chief executive John Dodds commented: “I am confident that Chris will be an asset to the business and, along with the rest of the Kier Partnership Homes team, will shape a division that meets the demands of today’s market place and is well positioned to take advantage of new opportunities as they emerge.”
