Sandra Brydon, director for Home Group Scotland, said: “Ron, Catherine and Julia bring a broad range of expertise between them, from architecture, construction and planning to actually being a customer with us and knowing the communities well. I know that between them, they will help deliver our promise of building homes, aspirations and independence in Scotland and will help us make the best decisions for our customers. Everyone at Home Group in Scotland is excited to welcome them.”
