HOUSE builder Story Homes has been listed in The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 for the fourth consecutive year.

The annual league table ranks Britain’s top 100 private companies with the fastest-growing profits and Story Homes, which has an office in Carlisle and is behind several developments in Dumfriesshire, is breaking a record by being listed for the seventh time overall.

Founder Fred Story, who recently stepped back in as CEO, said: “I am very pleased that we have again made the list of the 100 companies with the fastest-growing profits in the UK, in a year when we have seen the most significant growth in the company’s history as well as various challenges in the construction industry. We are moving into a year of consolidation for 2018/19, making operational effectiveness our priority to ensure we remain focused on building high quality homes, providing an excellent sales journey to customers and ensuring that customers are fully satisfied and supported once they move into their new homes.”

Several senior appointments have recently been made, including the appointment of Colin Wood as managing director of the North West region; Phillipa Chadwick as group brand director; and Lindsey Pownall as non-executive director.
