Group Managing Director, Thakeham
Thakeham has grown into one of the most successful developers and placemakers in the South East of England and is now listed as a “Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100” company.
Our Group Managing Director Robert Boughton, has led Thakeham on a exceptional growth journey over recent years. Today Thakeham is a highly successful business, ranked in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 in 2018.
Rob gives an outline of how the current and future forecast for our industry has affected our business. He gives insight into how this has driven a business model and plan which will enable growth and security for the business and its partners in the coming years.
By working with our Board of Directors and our internal team of experts, we are confident our decisions and plans mitigate risk in the uncertain economic landscape that is ahead. By diversifying our business model, by working with new partners and with an increased contribution to public and affordable housing, we are putting plans in place which are key in securing our business’s resilience. This not only benefits us but also our extensive supply chain.
Referring to a business ‘wall of investment’, Rob’s view is that the market is in limbo, leading to people ‘sitting on their hands’ until an element of certainty is provided. However, we will not stand still – we are going from strength to strength. Rob concludes by outlining Thakeham’s impressive growth forecast, introducing our expansion plans into the Oxford and Cambridge corridor, a diversification of our product and our thoughts on investing in technology.
An inspiring conversation which presents an exciting future for both us and our partners.
