Business Development Manager, Churches of Christ Housing Services Ltd

My housing career spans 25 years. With one of the UK’s largest Registered Social Landlords I have been involved in regeneration programs as well as large scale stock transfers and development projects. I moved to Australia in 2008 to join the Brisbane Housing Company and oversaw the growth in tenancy management from 500 to over 1500 mixed tenure units, including the introduction of the National Rental Affordability Scheme. In my current role with Churches of Christ Housing Services Limited as a Business Development Manager, I have been instrumental in the introduction of innovative projects, including a program of integrated communities for over 55’s which has been recognised by the Queensland government as a model of best practice, and has resulted in the successful transfer of over 150 tenants who were under-occupying public housing.
