Robert McNee, 55, has taken on the position of Director of Health, Safety and Environment.

Based at the company’s Measham head office, Mr McNee will be responsible for health and safety at developments across its seven regions.

Mr McNee has 39 years experience of working in the construction industry, and began his career as a carpenter.

He joined Bloor Homes as a site manager for its Northampton office in 1991, having previously worked for McLean Homes.

Commenting on his long career with the housebuilder, he said: “My association with Bloor Homes goes back to 1990, when my dad purchased one of their homes in Northampton. I was so impressed with the quality of build, the high specifications of the house and the final touches that I knew straightaway that this was the company I could see myself building a long-term career with.

“I am very excited about the new opportunity I have been presented with. I enjoy working for Bloor as it is a forward-thinking company which encourages team work and new ideas.

“Most importantly, it retains traditional values in terms of how a site should be run and never compromises on heath and safety standards.”

Mr McNee, who enjoys adventurous backpacking and long mountain walks with his partner, says he will be bringing a practical and pragmatic approach to his new role.

He added: “Communication skills are extremely important in my new role and especially the way you explain to people the significance of following certain systems and procedures. I am very good with building relationships and like supporting my team.”
