When did you join the Board? 

I joined the Board March 2024.

What is your professional experience? 

I have a degree (Hons) in Business Studies and a MSc in Construction Project Management the latter as a mature student. My background is within maintenance, asset management, and affordable housing supply. I am currently working on private residential and commercial developments within the UK and Europe providing project management services. However, the majority of my 20 years’ experience has been spent within medium sized Scottish Registered Social Landlord’s and Local Authorities. My experience covers both operational and strategic elements within the property field.

My focus and commitment over the years has been to increase the supply of affordable housing for all tenure types and ensuring that existing stock is suitable for the future to provide good quality affordable housing to meet the needs of tenants. My passion still remains within the social housing sector in delivering affordable housing whilst maintaining existing stock ensuring tenants needs are met.

Why did you want to join the Board?

KHA are a forward thinking and proactive organisation. Over the years I have watched how the organisation has grown and developed to support the communities for which they operate in. I believe in the Associations values and wish to contribute to the leadership and share my experiences and knowledge as well as grow and develop my own skills and knowledge within social housing.
