Founder and executive chairman James Hopkins, 59, worked as a fine-art dealer and fishmonger before moving into the building trade after acquiring a run-down cottage, which he fixed up and sold for a profit. Now his company builds close to 1,000 homes a year in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. It plans to expand into the south and west of England.
