Beale takes over from James Thomson, who has stepped down following seven years in the role but remains on the board as a non-executive director.

The Doncaster-based house builder, which in its last set of accounts filed at Companies House posted a one third hike in revenue to £495m for the year ending March 2018, has also appointed Tom Dwyer as group production director. He has joined after 14 years at Crest Nicholson.
