MacGregor takes newly-created role at Milne
He will take up the newly-created post following a review of the overall group structure and will work closely with the chief executive, Glenn Allison, with responsibility for managing all aspects of the group’s activities and overseeing ambitious growth plans across all its business operations.
Mr Allison said: “Stuart has made a huge contribution to realising the group’s growth strategy and has played a critical role in delivering innovative funding partnerships with the UK Treasury and Homes England which have helped facilitate this success.
“His proven commercial skills, combined with his extensive financial knowledge and business experience, make him the obvious choice to support me in delivering our growth ambitions.”
Mr MacGregor joined Stewart Milne Group in April 2015 after a 15 year career with Heineken where he held a number of senior finance roles in the UK and across Europe.
Latterly he held the position of global business control director at Heineken’s headquarters in Amsterdam where he was responsible for the finances of the central functions of the group.
During his time with the global brewer he also worked in Belgium, Portugal and Finland and has a proven track record in driving profitable and sustainable business growth.
Mr MacGregor said: “It has been hugely enjoyable and rewarding to work with Glenn and the team in the last three years.
“As a result of the decisions we’ve taken to invest in strong performing markets, the business is now well positioned for sustainable growth. I am excited about accepting wider responsibility within Stewart Milne Group and look forward to working with the entire team to drive the business forward.”
The search for a new group finance director is under way.
