Doncaster-based Keepmoat is one of Britain’s biggest builders of affordable housing. The private-equity groups Sun Capital and TDR Capital bought the company from Lloyds Banking Group in 2014 for about £400m. In 2017 it built 2,925 homes, which helped generate sales of £1.1bn. In April the firm sold its regeneration arm to the French energy provider ENGIE for £330m, with James Thomson, 50, becoming executive chairman of the remaining group, and Peter Hindley, 55, chief executive.
