Birketts boss Agar joins Hopkins board
Jonathan Agar, CEO at leading law firm Birketts, has joined the Hopkins Board as a non-executive director of the award-winning housebuilding company.
James Hopkins, executive chairman of Hopkins Homes, said: “I have worked with Jonathan on a number of projects over the last six years and greatly value his wisdom and advice.
“Jonathan is one of the region’s most experienced businessmen with invaluable knowledge of leading companies through phases of accelerated growth.
“Hopkins Homes has grown significantly in recent years. Five years ago we built around 300 homes annually, now we build over 1000 – making us the region’s largest independent housebuilder, with ambitions to grow further.
“Jonathan joins us at an exciting time in the company’s development and we are fortunate to have his combination of skills and experience on the board.”
The Hopkins Group was listed in the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 and Hopkins and Moore, part of the group, was named in the London Stock Exchange’s 1000 companies to inspire Britain list for the second year in a row.
Agar said: “I am very excited by this opportunity to become part of an incredibly successful business and help James and the rest of the team develop their plans for the next phase of the company’s development.
“This is a confident company with a distinctive brand – renowned for the quality of its houses and its strong roots in the local community. These set the company apart from its competitors at a time when house buyers are increasingly looking for quality and character in their new homes.”
