He has also held management roles at Mace Group and Lendlease.

Chris said: “It’s estimated that there is a backlog of four million homes across the UK, with the deficit growing by 140,000 homes a year.

“At the same time, the real estate industry is looking to get a grip on cost inflation and programme overruns. With the urgent need for more homes, more and more businesses will be looking for tech-enabled solutions that provide the means to deliver high-quality homes that produce less waste and cut levels of embodied carbon.

“Modulous was set up to solve these problems and I look forward to working closely with the wider industry to explain how we can help tackle these common pain points and enable the delivery of more sustainable homes.”

Reimell Ragnauth, Co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer at Modulous, added: “Following the completion of our £10 million Series A, we’re delighted to welcome Chris who brings over 20 years’ of industry experience to Modulous.

“Chris will play a key role as we build upon and expand our relationships with developers, local authorities and housing associations who are interested in how Modulous can enable them to deliver sustainable, affordable homes at pace and scale.”
