Derek graduated from the University of Strathclyde with a BA (Hons) in Finance and Marketing and is a part qualified accountant. He started work with Linthouse Housing Association in November 1996 as a graduate trainee within the maintenance department. As his passion for social housing grew, he moved to work within the finance department as a Finance Assistant before becoming Finance Officer, a post he occupied for many years.
In late 2018 an exciting opportunity for promotion arose within our newly formed Asset Management team. Derek applied for it and was appointed to the new post of Asset Manager.
Derek’s knowledge of our IT systems, processes and over 20 years’ experience of working at the Association will help us to achieve our goal of investing wisely in our housing stock. As both Asset Manager and a member of the Senior Leadership Team Derek hopes to help contribute to and shape an exciting future for Linthouse in the years to come!
