In his new role at Tilia Homes, Ben will oversee the operational side of the construction process on the housebuilder’s developments across the region, ensuring the timely delivery of new developments, with a focus on high standards and with customer focus at the forefront.
Ben comments: “I’m delighted to have joined Tilia Homes, a company with ambitious expansion plans which mirror my own drive for success within the industry. Tilia already has a strong foothold in the Eastern region and as part of my role I will be ensuring our developments produce housing of the highest quality whilst also growing the region alongside the company’s planned growth.
“As a relatively new brand in the construction industry, albeit one built on a long-standing legacy, Tilia has significant potential to become one of the UK’s leading housebuilders and I am looking forward to utilising my experience and knowledge to help the company achieve its growth objectives.”
Ben started his career as a trainee site manager with Wilmott Dixon, whilst studying for a degree in Construction Management at the University of Bedfordshire. Ben managed his first site aged just 22 and quickly progressed to senior site manager. He then moved to housebuilder Hill Group, quickly rising through the ranks to project director, where he was nominated for the MCIOB Construction Manager of the Year main industry award. In a promotion, Ben took the role of Construction Director at Morris Homes, where he was responsible for the company’s construction division within its Eastern region.
Jonathan Miller, Managing Director at Tilia Homes Eastern said: “We’re delighted to welcome Ben to Tilia Eastern. His appointment comes at an exciting time for the business following the recent move to our new office in Bedford and as we implement our rapid growth plans.
“Managing the construction process and ensuring a high quality build and timely delivery is vital for the success of our business and maintaining high levels of customer service. Ben has a proven track record in the industry for delivering new homes and we are thrilled he’s here to support us on this journey.”
