Derek has been a Director of Kingdom Initiatives Limited since 2015. Derek is a retired Chartered Surveyor and when asked why he became involved with Kingdom Housing Association, Derek explained "I have spent a considerable part of my working life working in the affordable housing sector and in particular with Kingdom Housing Association. I was a Quantity Surveyor on their first project at Victoria Terrace and have lost count of the Kingdom projects that I have been involved since then. It has given me a great amount of satisfaction over the years to know that I have been involved in providing much needed affordable housing and been part of the success that is Kingdom. My skills and understanding of the Construction Industry in general and the Affordable Housing sector in particular could be useful in the challenging times ahead.
