Matthew Biddle has joined from Berkeley Group as Managing Director of the new McLaren Living business.
McLaren Living will look to create partnerships and joint ventures with private and public-sector organisations to build homes and mixed-use developments across the UK.
Biddle will work alongside former Chief Executive of Newham Council, Kim Bromley-Derry to strengthen McLaren’s partnership offering and develop long-term joint ventures.
Kevin Taylor, Chairman, McLaren Group, said: “We welcome Matthew to McLaren at this exciting point in the evolution and growth of our company.
“His skills and experience will help us to deliver homes that the country so badly needs and new places where people want to live, work and stay.
“We look forward to sharing our can-do culture with local authorities, registered providers and other organisations, working in partnership to help them to meet and exceed their housing priorities.”
Biddle said: “It’s a pleasure to be joining at the inception of McLaren Living, working with McLaren Group’s leadership team to establish this new business.
“We will be delivering developments for the public sector along with homes for rent and sale, working in true partnerships to develop places that make a positive difference to people’s lives.
“I’m particularly excited to be joining a team of passionate, experienced individuals who bring a fresh enthusiasm to building homes and places that enhance and transform communities, drive local employment and protect the environment.”
