Crest Nicholson is a leading residential and mixed-used development company operating through five regional divisions in the UK. Two further specialist divisions focus on delivering our regeneration projects and long-term strategic land portfolio. Crest Nicholson operates through the Board, with day-to-day management of the business delegated to the Chief Executive and the Executive Management Team.

Responsibilities and accountability

The Board comprises a Non-Executive Chairman, 5 Non-Executive Directors and 3 Executive Directors. Biographies for Board members are available here.

The Board is responsible for setting and monitoring the business strategy, setting the Group’s risk appetite, formulating policy on key issues and reporting to shareholders. The Board oversees the Executive Management Team, which in turn, has responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the business and developing strategy for the Board’s input and approval.

Appropriate management responsibility is further delegated to divisions and their management boards with input and oversight by the Executive Management Team. A central function supports the business, with individual heads also reporting to the Executive Management Team.
