Today, I’m delighted to sit down with two people in the industry that I really admire. Chris Shaw, an almost high-school dropout who shunned the family construction business to pursue a career in broadcast media, before coming back to this world during the 2008 recession and ultimately going onto build one of the largest construction companies in the north west.
The second voice you’re going to hear is Alex Riddick. Alex is an electrician by trade who spotted the potential for student accommodation while working as a contractor on other people’s projects. He then went onto buy his first HMO in 2016 and, as most trades tend to do, he got very hands on with that first project. Since then, he has systemised his business and has built an enviable portfolio with some of the highest standard student properties in Liverpool.
The real beauty of their story comes when the pair met, and by bringing their collective experience and complementary skills together, they are braced for huge growth in both sides of the business, the construction side and the investment portfolio side. It’s early days for them working together as a team and only time will tell how this story ends, but from my perspective, they’ve got a lot of value to share and I’m sure you will enjoy the discussion as well.
