McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading developer of retirement properties for independent living, has appointed John White as chairman with immediate effect.
He was most recently Group chairman of UK housebuilder Persimmon. He takes over from Jeremy Jensen, who had held the position on an interim basis since February 2013.
He said: “I am very excited to be part of McCarthy & Stone, a company that has firmly established itself as the UK’s leading developer of retirement properties. The team has made tremendous progress this year in securing such a successful refinancing with the overwhelming support of lenders, which puts the business in a very strong position to capture the exciting growth opportunities that lie ahead."
