Residential Secure Income plc (“ReSI”), which invests in affordable shared ownership, retirement and local authority housing, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Gillian Rowley as an independent non-executive director of ReSI’s Registered Provider of Social Housing, ReSI Housing Limited.
Gillian Rowley brings over 30 years of housing and housing finance expertise, with a focus on policy development within the framework of regulatory standards.
Gillian was Head of Private Finance at the former social housing regulator, the Homes & Communities Agency, where for 13 years she was responsible for relationships with lenders, investors, advisers and credit rating agencies operating in the social housing sector. This overlapped with Gillian serving as the non-executive director for The Housing Finance Corporation from 2006 – 2012 where she was heavily involved in business strategy, financial policy and governance. Gillian has also been an authority on all aspects of social housing finance policy, including advising government departments, leading on areas of regulatory standards and being responsible for social housing sector guidance on treasury management.
Gillian joins existing board members including independent chairman David Orr CBE, until recently the chief executive of the National Housing Federation, as well as Mark Rogers and Pete Redman who together have 85 years of experience in leading social housing organisations.
Alex Pilato, Chief Executive of TradeRisks Group, the parent of ReSI’s fund manager, said:
“Gillian has had an impressive career and is an excellent fit with the current skillset of our Board at ReSI Housing. She will no doubt have a significant contribution to make as we look to continue to take advantage of our position as the first listed investment fund to achieve Registered Provider status in order to bring much needed new affordable homes to market whilst delivering stable and secure income returns for our shareholders. We look forward to working with her.”
