New director of housing for H+H
Published:  08 March, 2011

SEVENOAKS: H+H, the UK’s leading manufacturer of aircrete building products, has appointed Neil Thomas to the critical director of housing role.  Mr Thomas joins H+H from British Gypsum where he was responsible for sales to national housebuilders.

 

Mark Oliver, managing director of H+H underlines the importance of this role to the company: “Much of H+H’s continued success is down to the longstanding and close relationships we enjoy with leading housebuilders.   Working together allows us to participate in experimental projects (such as recent Code 6 designs) as well as enabling us to build an unrivalled understanding of the market requirements for aircrete.”

“Housebuilding has been having a tough time over the last couple of years,” Mr Thomas admits, “but I admire the way that H+H has responded with innovation, quality improvements and an unswerving commitment to improving its sustainability credentials.   There are challenges and huge opportunities – so this is a very exciting move for me.”

Mr Thomas will be taking over from George Straw, a well-known and widely respected industry character, who retired in February 2011.
