New Build Guru: power to you
New Build Guru is a member organisation for new build homeowners throughout the UK. We are owned and democratically controlled by our members and work for their benefit.
New Build Guru harnesses the power of the collective to help its members achieve unprecedented outcomes on common problems including getting design and construction defects resolved properly, and addressing unfair arrangements and exploitative practices.
Board of Directors
A founding member of New Build Guru, Geoff's professional background is in legal services. Geoff is the founder and owner of Wingrove Law, a niche law firm specialising in advising new build homebuyers on resolving disputes with developers, warranty providers and others. Prior to this, Geoff had spent the early part of his legal career advising many of the UK's largest housebuilders. His unrivalled experience in acting for buyers, combined with having spent time in both 'camps', has enabled Geoff to develop a unique insight into how and when problems arise for buyers, what limits individual owners' ability to obtain redress when problems arise, and how to address these problems effectively.
New Build Guru represents the culmination of Geoff's insight and experience, and is a true game changer offering a complete and uniquely-effective cradle-to-grave solution for new build buyers in relation to risk management and resolving common problems.
Geoff is responsible for business strategy, finance and the day to day running of New Build Guru.
Anna is a co-founding member of New Build Guru. Anna is passionate about helping bring about systemic reform and promoting the interests of new build homebuyers generally through coordinated self-help and group action, which is good because that is a big part of what we do.
Out of the office Anna can be found either on the river or running along side it, as she loves to compete in half marathons and coxed at Oxford Brookes University Boat Club, Europe’s leading university rowing club renowned for its development of Olympic athletes. Anna also runs a campaign called Hot Spot Bottle, which provides hot water bottles in partnership with local cafes and restaurants to the homeless.
Anna's steely determination, good humour and occasional bossiness add a youthful and energetic vibe to the business.
Anna's primary responsibilities are marketing and membership administration.
