Bridget Guilfoyle is our new Director of Asset Management

Bridget Guilfoyle joined our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) as our new Director of Asset Management earlier this month.

Bridget has held Director and Non-Executive Director positions for the last 15 years and joins us from Plus Dane Housing – a northwest based housing association with 13,000 homes – where she was Director of Assets, Compliance and Health & Safety.

She started her career working for the Direct Labour Organisation for Manchester City Council. She then moved onto delivering stock transfers and working on housing and regeneration projects for organisations such as Harvest Housing Group, Your Housing, Eric Wright Group and Housing 21.

Bridget said: “I was first attracted to Citizen as the organisation’s values align with my own. I’m passionate about doing the right thing and making a difference and I enjoy taking ownership and responsibility in delivering the wider objectives of a business.

“I’ve enjoyed my first couple of weeks here. It’s been great getting to know everyone and seeing how the business functions. I’m also getting an insight into the challenges we face when investing in our homes. My priority now is working on our new Asset Management and Sustainability Strategies that are due for review by the Board in March.

“In my personal life I spend a lot of time with my family and friends, and I love to travel, seeing new places both at home and abroad. My latest trip was revisiting the city frozen in time at Pompeii, which is just fascinating.”

Our Chief Operating Officer Mads Nelson said: “We’re delighted to welcome Bridget to the business and our Director of Asset Management is an exciting and challenging role. Bridget’s experience will now be crucial in ensuring that we provide the right level of focus on existing homes, creating a plan that will improve the quality of homes and the environment so that our customers have a home that is a foundation for life.

“It’s great to have Bridget on board, particularly at this moment in time when we’re developing our new strategies for this part of the business. I’m really looking forward to seeing her playing a central role in driving forward our objectives and shaping our future.”
