Inland Homes plc

("Inland Homes" or the "Group")

Appointment of new CEO

Inland Homes plc (AIM: INL), the housebuilder, partnership housing developer and regeneration specialist focused on the South and South East of England, is delighted to announce that, following a thorough and wide-ranging search process, Donagh ("Don") O'Sullivan will join the Board as Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") of the Group, commencing on Tuesday 6 December, 2022.

Don is a proven leader, with a strong track record of operational, strategic and commercial success in construction and property development. Don was formerly CEO of the privately owned, Galliard Homes from July 2017 until March 2022, having joined the company in 2001 originally as a contract manager.

Don studied civil engineering at the University of Cork and upon graduating went to work for Balfour Beatty in London. The early part of his career was spent working on major contracting projects. Don was headhunted to join Galliard Homes in 2001. At the time, its construction division was in its infancy and he was employed to grow and expand this in-house capability within the property development business. This he successfully did and built up Galliard's construction expertise and capacity, thereby enabling the company to take on and deliver some of the largest residential development projects in London.

Don was made Group Managing Director in 2012 and was then appointed as Group CEO in 2017. During his tenure as CEO, Galliard completed over 5,000 homes and made aggregate profits of over GBP250 million.

Don was a large contributor to the success of Galliard Homes, which has an enviable reputation for build quality and customer aftercare. During his time with Galliard Homes, Don has worked with the majority of the major UK housing associations, banks, PRS, public bodies and local authorities.

Going forward, Don will lead the ongoing strategic review of Inland Homes, which was announced on 6 September. The Board intends to provide an update on the strategic review in the first quarter of 2023.

Following Don's arrival, Nishith Malde will continue as the Group's CFO, having also acted as interim CEO since 6 September.

Simon Bennett, Chair of Inland Homes, commented:

"I am delighted that Don is joining Inland Homes as its next CEO. I have no doubt that Don has the necessary experience, skills and expertise to take the Group to the next stage of its development. He is ideally qualified to lead Inland Homes and his construction expertise will prove to be invaluable. Don will be warmly welcomed."

Donagh O'Sullivan, CEO of Inland Homes, commented:

"I am pleased to be joining Inland Homes as its new CEO at such a strategically important time. I am looking forward to working with the Inland Homes team to return the business to sustainable profitable growth and to optimising the significant future opportunities available to us."

Notes to Editors:

Incorporated in the UK in 2005, Inland Homes plc is an AIM-listed specialist housebuilder and brownfield developer, dedicated to achieving excellence in sustainability and design.

Inland Homes acquires brownfield land in the South and South East of England principally for residentially led development schemes. The business then enhances the land value by obtaining planning permission, before building open market and affordable homes or selling surplus consented land to other developers to generate cash.

The Group is committed to extensive public and community consultation in order to ensure that, where possible, local community needs and objectives are met.

Inland's aim is to create sustainable communities and homes which set a benchmark for all future developments in the South and South East of England. The Group is always looking for brownfield sites without planning permission for future development.

Environmental, Social and Governance credentials

Inland Homes is committed to ensuring its land, housebuilding and partnership housing activities leave a positive lasting legacy. As specialists in brownfield site regeneration the Group already has a proud history of adding lasting value through its expertise and experience in site remediation, which allows derelict and near derelict land to be regenerated and used for the construction of new homes.

Inland Homes takes its position as an industry leader extremely seriously and has developed its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework against the broader backdrop of an escalating global climate issue. The Group's ESG framework, which has been aligned to four of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, sets out our high-level commitments. Using this framework, we are now focused on developing a full ESG strategy. The strategy will identify clear goals and metrics to enable us to measure and report on our performance and success in this space.
