Glenn’s arrival at CALA coincides with the retirement of Chris Roads, who joined CALA’s North Home Counties region back in 2014. When Chris joined CALA, the North Home Counties region was in its infancy, with just one active site and a small sales team in place. Half a decade on, and Chris has been instrumental in growing the sales team to 25 individuals, completing on average 186 homes per year. He retires with a total of 6 active sites across the region.

Of his time at CALA, Chris said: “I’ve had a great five years and I can’t think of a better company to end of my career with. I’m incredibly proud of what I’ve helped to achieve for the region and I look forward to seeing the business grow and continue to flourish.”  

Duncan Jackson, Managing Director for CALA Homes North Home Counties, said: “We are delighted to welcome Glenn to the team as our new sales and marketing director. Glenn brings with him a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills which will be integral as we continue with our plans to grow and develop the brand in the region. I also want to thank Chris for his dedication and hard work over the past five years and wish him all the best in his retirement.”
