John Totty, who previously headed up Yorkshire based Totty Construction, is the newest addition to the fast-growing team at Leeds based CAPD Complete Build Solutions and will oversee business development.
The family run company was founded in 2011 and since then has established an impressive portfolio of work across both the residential and commercial sectors throughout the North of England. CAPD currently employs a 24 strong-team, headed up by managing director Gav Sambhi and commercial director Peter Ellis who previously spent 11 years working at Totty Construction. Veritas Recruitment Solutions, which recruits throughout the construction industry, introduced John Totty to CAPD.
Totty explains: “Joining CAPD is a fantastic prospect. It’s a family run business with a very ambitious, hard-working team. It was clear from my first meeting with Gav and Peter, that we all shared a tremendous amount of business ethics and integrity in respect of our common goals and values; many of the same values that made Totty Construction such a success. I’m really looking forward to opening up new opportunities for the company, particularly across Yorkshire, Cheshire and beyond.
“It’s also an exciting time for the construction sector as a whole, with so many new projects getting underway. As a result, there are major opportunities out there for an independent, agile and efficient firm that can genuinely add value and expertise, which makes this the ideal time to return to the industry with CAPD.”
Sambhi says: “John spent many years building and leading one of the North of England’s leading construction companies that delivered outstanding construction projects as well as continually innovating and focussing on quality, which mirrors our commercial goals and ambitions. He’s therefore a very exciting appointment for us and will be a key figure in our growth plans.”
Ellis adds: “John joining CAPD will help us to attract new clients and business opportunities within all industry sectors. John and CAPD share the same commercial values, goals and ambitions and together we will continue building a better and brighter future by continually delivering exceptional construction projects.”
Chris Tinson, managing director of Veritas Recruitment Solutions, says: “Our goal is always to bring top businesses and top talent together. It’s been a pleasure to work with both CAPD and John throughout the recruitment process and it’s always exciting to see the results of professionals coming together who share the same values, approaches and passions. The CAPD team have a very exciting 2018 in front of them and we look forward to following their success.”
