Keepmoat has a strong and extensive track record of more than 80 years in the UK housing industry. The business is a national market leader in sustainable community regeneration and housing, as well as planned and responsive repairs, and has already touched the lives of millions of people across the country. Keepmoat doesn't just construct buildings it creates communities and great places to live, work, and play.
CEO Dave Sheridan has been leading Keepmoat on the path to success since October 2012. He has a background in social housing, working as regional managing director of Kier Group from 2002-08 and later as CEO of Apollo Property Service Group for almost three and a half years. Both roles honed his managerial and directorial skills, preparing him well for his current position. "Apollo Property Service Group predominantly worked in social housing refurbishment contracts in the south of England," Dave explains. "My brief was to take that on a national platform and bring in big company experience, which we successfully did. In 2011, we started merger talks with Keepmoat because Keepmoat did exactly what Apollo did but in the northern part of the country." Keepmoat which consists of a group of companies: Bramall Construction, Frank Haslam Milan, Milnerbuild and Keepmoat Homesand Apollo subsequently merged in 2012 and Dave was appointed into the role of chief operating officer for the northern side of the newly combined business. Roughly six months later, he became CEO of the whole group and oversaw the integration of the two companies. Keepmoat was acquired by TDR Capital and Sun Capital in September 2014, which ensured it was in a satisfactory position to realise its long-term ambitions and great potential.
