New construction director appointed


Persimmon Homes has appointed a new regional construction director in its Cornwall and west Devon region.

Mike Crawford, who has chalked up more than 20 years in the housing industry, joins Persimmon from Bloor Homes where he served as a construction director.

Crawford is a highly experienced chartered construction director with a proven and consistent track record for leading teams, delivering the highest levels of safety management, quality standards, and business objectives, whilst understanding the requirements of key partners and clients.

He will be responsible for driving construction performance in Cornwall and west Devon against build targets, quality targets, and implementation of group policies and procedures.

“I am delighted to be joining Persimmon Homes at such an exciting time for the business in Cornwall and west Devon,” he said.

“The opportunity to work for a company with a growing presence in the area was very attractive, and I’m looking forward to putting my mark on the business, which is putting quality and customer service at the forefront of everything they do.”

Crawford entered the industry at the age of 19, working as a site labourer for Alfred McAlpine Homes, where he impressed and was swiftly promoted through the ranks.

After McAlpine was taken over by Taylor Wimpey, he progressed to a role as a senior site manager winning 16 NHBC awards in the process, including three south west regional titles.
