In conjunction with the deal, Richard Taylor, investment director at BGF, joined the board.

Led by Peter Cussins, executive chairman, and his son Jabin, chief executive officer, who will remain majority shareholders of the business, Cussins focuses on smaller developments of between 10 and 70 homes.
To support business growth, the company appointed Mike Stansfield, former chief executive of David Wilson Homes, as non-executive chairman.
