I have over 35 years’ experience in 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.
Before this, I was head of design & construction at Circle Housing Group (now Clarion), one of the largest 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.
I also 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 year across the region, including affordable rent, shared ownership, market rent and market sale tenures, together with specialist housing for older residents.
I gained a BSc. in Building 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 two grown-up children; my interests include reading and music. I’m also a keen cyclist and spend quite a lot of time in the garden.
