Greg Fitzgerald

CEO, Bovis Homes

Bovis Homes chief executive Greg Fitzgerald began his building career on a YTS scheme as a trainee estimator with Midas Construction in the south west of England in 1982.

Fast forward ten years and he was forming Midas Homes along with other directors – selling the business to Galliford plc just five years later.

Greg set up Gerald Wood Homes with partner Dave Wood in 1999, sold that business to Galliford Try in 2000, and there then followed major appointments within Galliford Try: managing director of the homes division in 2003, chief executive in 2005, executive chairman in 2014 and non-executive chairman in 2016.

A brief period of semi-retirement lasted until April 2017 when he joined Bovis Homes, overseeing a transformation in the business’ performance as it reached 2019 as one of only three housebuildrers to leap two stars in a year in the history of the annual HBF Customer Satisfaction Survey results, while also recording record profits.
