Brian was a key member of my Executive team; customer focused, leading by example, not afraid to roll his sleeves up, a great networker and somebody you want with you when the going get’s tough! One of housing’s stars!

I worked with Brian closely over a number of years. I was able to witness first hand his keen strategic mind, incisive decision making with a friendly and engaging personality. He was well respected by colleagues, non-executives, stakeholders and partners. A knowledgeable and rounded housing professional he knows how to get to the heart of a problem and solve it!

Brian has a whole range of skills that he uses at appropriate times. He is an excellent manager of staff and I saw him managing his staff teams during considerable time of change and job losses.
