“There’s a massive demand for good quality new housing so the future is looking bright.

“We have just launched The Heights in Newark and we have six to eight new developments on the horizon in the next six months.”

Steven, who lives in Harpenden in Hertfordshire, said he was determined to improve customer journey at the business.

“We have a fantastic array of different people here from all sorts of backgrounds,” said Steven. “It’s a real eclectic mix, but with their commitment and enthusiasm it really is great to be part of the team.

“The challenge is for us to improve customer experience right across the board and to make us more effective and sharper. There is a common goal within the business and we are making huge strides towards this.”

Simon McDonald, managing director at Persimmon Homes East Midlands, said: “We are delighted to welcome Steven to the team.
