I have nearly thirty years’ experience of working in the private and public housing sector including sales agents, solicitors and housing associations. I am commercially astute, entrepreneurial self-starter with the proven ability to seek out new commercial opportunities and turn them into deliverable, profitable projects.
I have been at the forefront of shared ownership since the early 90’s, initiating and then project managing, marketing and delivering on the following:
- The Right to Buy
- Shared Ownership
- Tenants Incentive Schemes
- Mortgage Rescue
- Intermediate Rent
- Key Worker housing
- Keyhomes East – the sales and marketing arm of bpha www.keyhomes-east.org.uk
- HomeBuy Agency service
- cpl (Cambridgeshire Partnerships Limited) www.clphomes.co.uk
- Extra Care Shared Ownership
I am a member of The Chartered Institute of Marketing and a former member of:
The Intermediate Market Advisory Group – helping shape and inform the strategic direction of the National Housing Federations lobbying and policy work on intermediate housing, alongside wider investment issues.
The Highbury Group – an independent group of specialists from public, private and independent sectors from housing, planning and related professions which prepares proposals for Government and other agencies on responses to the current ‘credit crunch’ aimed at maintaining the output of housing including affordable housing.
I frequently speak at national conferences on marketing, emerging products and lender relationships.
