John Seddon announces retirement
The chairman of JSSH – the parent company of Novus Property Solutions – John Seddon, has announced his retirement.
Mr Seddon had been involved in the family business for 63 years, starting as an apprentice bricklayer for Seddon at 17 before becoming contracts manager and then ultimately chairman of Seddon Group in 1978.
In 2013, Seddon Group was partitioned into three businesses in which Mr Seddon was an instrumental part – a move which led to the formation of Novus Property Solutions, formerly Seddon Property Services.
He said: “I’m immensely proud of what I’ve achieved in my career and know that Novus and JSSH are in the safe hands of members of my family. We have a very strong balance sheet and have had a successful first full year trading and we are all looking forward to the future with confidence.”
