Geoffrey Hutchinson stands down from his non-executive position

The former chairman of housebuilder Crosby Homes has stepped down just weeks after a restructure of UK businesses by its parent company Lend Lease and its regional chief executive Dan Labbad.

Geoffrey Hutchinson, who chaired the firm while it was owned by Berkeley Group, stood down from his non-executive position earlier this month, having stayed with the company since the acquisition by Lend Lease in 2005.

Lend Lease refused to say why Hutchinson had left. His departure follows the announcement in June that Bovis chief executive Nick Pollard will step down. Lend Lease said its development MD Richard Cable would remain in charge of the business.

Crosby reported a 77% fall in revenue in its results to June 2009.
