New directors appointed to our board

New executive chair and non-executive director will help to oversee wind down of Brick By Brick on behalf of Croydon Council.

Andrew Percival will be taking on the role of Executive Chair. Following a successful naval career, Andrew has been a Director at UPP Group Holdings, Vinci and Taylor Woodrow and was Chair of Stevenage First and a Board Member of the Hertfordshire LEP and is currently Independent Chair of the Hemel Place Board.

Griff Marshalsay joins the board as a Non-Executive Director. Griff has over 30 years’ experience in property operations and management for residential development companies including Catalyst Housing, Antler Homes, the Berkeley Group and Bellway Homes. He is currently chair of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead’s property company.

Andrew and Griff will start immediately, joining existing directors Duncan Whitfield and Ian O’Donnell.

In July 2021, in the context of significant wider financial challenges and pressures, Croydon Council opted to cease funding any additional Brick By Brick schemes and wind the company down once any sites under active construction were completed. This is anticipated to be in summer 2023.

The new Board members will work with the council to close out the company’s existing developments, utilising their vast client-side development experience to achieve the delivery of high quality homes for residents in the borough.
