Redrow Morgan To Retire Next Month

Redrow founder and Chairman Steve Morgan 

has announced he will retire from the Board at the end of March 2019, virtually 10 years to the day since he returned to the business on 30 March 2009.

He will be succeeded as Executive Chairman by John Tutte, the current Group Chief Executive.

Matthew Pratt, 43, will be appointed Chief Operating Officer and will join the Board at the end of March 2019. Matthew has been with Redrow for 16 years and is currently the Regional CEO of the Southern businesses and a member of the Group Executive Board.

Steve said “I am delighted that John has accepted the invitation to succeed me as Chairman. I have worked closely with John over the last 10 years and believe that his appointment will ensure the stability and continuity so important to a business like Redrow.

“By the end of March 2019, it will be exactly 10 years since I returned to the Group and I am proud of what has been achieved over this time. Since I founded Redrow in 1974 we have had many important milestones”.

Garden Villages

Redrow claims credit for having taken the lead in designing great places to live as one of the early pioneers of Garden Villages, much admired by and included in the new WLBC Local Plan, whilst creating quality homes inspired by the arts & crafts movement.

Morgan retains a large shareholding and also donates to his charity which he has supported with £200million. Redrow was a thorn in the side of the Aughton Residents Group as they fought against his attempt to develop much of Parrs Lane.
