“I have over 35 years’ experience of development, new business and asset management working primarily in the housing association sector in the East of England, East & West Midlands, London and the South East.
I am currently the Director of Noryl Consulting Ltd. which I set up in October 2017 to provide consultancy services to organisations working to provide new affordable homes.
Prior to this, I was Head of Design & Construction at Circle Housing Group (now Clarion), one of the larger housing associations in the UK. This involved a group-wide role in ensuring quality housing delivery for customers as well as providing technical support to the department on large multi-tenure projects.
Before that I spent 10 years as Regional Development Director at Circle covering the East of England, East and West Midlands, generating and delivering up to 1,000 homes per annum across the region, including affordable rent, shared ownership, market rent and market sale tenures, together with specialist housing for older residents.
I have a BSc. in Building gained from Nottingham Trent University in 1980 and an MSc. in Property Development (Project Management) from London South Bank University in 1994.
I’m married with 2 grown-up children and my interests include reading and music. I’m also a keen cyclist and spend quite a lot of time in the garden.”
