Brent Housing Partnership has appointed two new directors to its executive management team.
Keith Harley has been appointed as director of development and growth, while Peta Caine has been appointed as director of operations.
Mr Harley joins from Willmott Dixon where he was responsible for strategy for new business across the affordable housing and housing for sale Sectors. He has worked in the affordable housing industry for 25 years.
Ms Caine was previously at Ealing Council where she was responsible for landlord services, and has been in social housing for 26 years.
BHP has recently signed a 10-year management agreement with Brent Council which puts forward a new model for housing and the role of ALMOs.
Mr Harley said: “I am very excited to join BHP and be part of such a dynamic organisation. One of the key aims over the coming years is to increase the number of affordable housing to rent and buy and help deal with the chronic housing shortage in the borough. I am looking forward to the challenge and making a significant contribution.”
Ms Caine said: “I am very pleased to be appointed as Director of Operations for BHP. I am impressed with the commitment and drive of BHP Officers and the Board to providing good services for residents and their passion for the community. I am keen to develop these relationships with both residents and suppliers, and build on the many strengths of the organisation.”
Tom Bremner, BHP’s managing director, added: “I would like to give a warm welcome to Keith and Peta. I look forward to working with them to ensure that we provide a first class service for our residents and take BHP to new heights.”
BHP manages 13,600 homes on behalf of Brent Council. It also owns and runs 330 properties of its own.
