Joseph Rajah

CEO

Joseph founded Joseph Homes in 2008 after years of serial entrepreneurship spanning property, events and NGO work. Starting his first business aged 14, Joseph is yet to have a ‘proper job’. He considers himself completely unemployable by traditional standards, so has no choice but to be CEO.

He has steered the ship through turbulent markets, growing the company dramatically in 10 years. With a focus on creativity, innovation and controlled profitable growth, Joseph is working to build on the company’s success over the next five years.

In his spare time, Joseph works on his cunning plan to have more spare time.

Paul Dipino MRICS

CIO

Paul is a member of the Royal Institution of chartered surveyors and has 25 years’ experience in the property industry. He has experienced the market as an agent, developer and investor which helps him take a broad, strategic view of the industry. Paul joined forces with Joseph to form Joseph Homes in 2010.

As Chief Innovation Officer, Paul makes sure growth is managed effectively by leading the team to innovate and think differently. He is passionate about doing things the right way, from design through to delivery. This principled approach has led the company to multiple industry awards.

Paul is a dedicated outdoorsman, and is always dragging his two young children out climbing, scuba diving and camping with him. Weekends see him on the sidelines at Richmond Rugby club wondering why he wasn’t as good as his son.

Michael Bryn-Jones

MD

Michael has been involved in property for over 30 years with a focus on residential led mixed use development for the last 24 years. Prior to joining Joseph Homes, he spent much of his formative years at St George, part of the Berkeley Group, in the Land and Planning team and rose up through the business to become Group Managing Director.

He has joined Joseph Homes as MD to support the Executive team in delivering the strong growth plans for the business with responsibility for the day to day actions and activities of this dynamic nose to tail business.

When not working Michael enjoys annoying fish and then bragging about the one that got away…

Paul Hunt

Production Director

Paul has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry with a proven track record of delivering large residential lead mixed use developments.

Paul is also a qualified quantity surveyor and brings a high level of commercial awareness to the construction process. Prior to joining Joseph Homes Paul spent 15 years at St George PLC holding Production Director and Commercial Director positions.

When not at work Paul enjoys sailing, and boring anyone he can persuade to sail with him with what all the pieces of string are called and why you need to pull them from time to time.
