Ken’s passion is helping public sector landlords to achieve value for money and social return on investment (SROI).

Ken drives our teams to perform the best we can for each client according to their priorities, goals and drivers. He regularly contacts senior representatives from the client organisations to keep abreast of any significant changes to their organisation; to share industry news and best practice; identify ways we can add value to our service; and obtain feedback on our performance.
