Paul Hooper-Keeley is currently negotiating leaving package with social housing provider

Paul Hooper-Keeley, finance director of social housing group Bullock Construction, has left the company Building understands.

The reasons surrounding his exit are unclear and the company refused to comment.

It is understood Hooper-Keeley, who joined the £140m-turnover company in April 2006, is currently negotiating the terms of his departure.

Last April the company was sold by Bank of Scotland to Lloyds Development Capital for an estimated £100m.

At the time there was speculation that Hooper-Keeley would leave the company following the sale.

The sale coincided with the retirement of managing director John Gaffney, who left Bullock owing to ill-health.

Bullock was formed after a Bank of Scotland-backed £42m management buyout of Montpellier’s social housing division in September 2005. Montpellier now trades as Renew.
