Allison Homes Appoints Dave Sheridan as Non-Executive Director

Lincolnshire-based developer, Allison Homes, has announced the appointment of Dave Sheridan as a Non-Executive Director. Former CEO of Keepmoat and currently Executive Chairman of Ilke Homes, Dave brings a strong track record in delivering growth, and extensive experience with private equity arrangements.

Starting out over 40 years ago at Wimpey Homes, by 2012 Dave was CEO of Keepmoat and oversaw a period of impressive growth during which the company increased output from around 1,500 homes per year to 4,500. He joins the Allison board as the company seeks to deliver against similarly ambitious targets.

Speaking of the appointment, John Anderson, CEO Allison Group, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Dave on board. His track record in managing rapid growth will have a significant impact on Allison as will his extensive experience of partnerships and private equity.

“He also brings drive and energy in the field of construction, his knowledge around Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) will be invaluable to the Allison board and to me personally. This is a very important period for Allison and I’m looking forward to working with Dave and the rest of the board as we pursue our goals.”

Dave Sheridan said: “Under John’s leadership, Allison Homes is embarking on an exciting new chapter, and I am eager to be a part of it. Globally it’s a challenging time but that doesn’t change the fact that the UK is in desperate need of new housing. I believe there is significant potential for a company with the drive and ambition of Allison to make a major impact on the delivery of those new homes.”

Operating in Lincolnshire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire, Devon, Somerset, Norfolk and Suffolk, Allison has recently announced several significant planning achievements in line with the growth strategy. In addition, a strategic partnership with Legal & General Affordable Homes for The Oaks in Norwich was unveiled earlier this year.

Dave continues: “Allison has all the ingredients – strong landbank, excellent vision and defined values in terms of quality of build and customer service – to shake up the status quo and I’m looking forward to working with John and the team to help them capitalise on the opportunities.”
