After 30 years in the City working for various global financial institutions, Mark left the corporate world in the summer of 2016, deciding that he wanted to work within the property development industry. Mark firmly believes that the Supported Living Gateway will help simplify and improve the way that supported living providers work with property owners. Mark is proud to be part of The Gateway team and knows that they will make a difference by helping create homes for those who need them most. 

Russ Crabtree

With over 30 years of experience in the construction industry, Russ has successfully delivered a range of residential and commercial schemes. He has a diverse property portfolio across several sectors including BTLs, serviced accommodation, social housing, and supported living. Over the last 6 years, Russ has worked closely with care providers, housing associations and local authorities to ensure quality, sustainable supported living accommodation that improves the lives of those who need it.

Lee Crawshaw

Lee Crawshaw

Lee has had a diverse career, predominantly within financial services, property and more recently within the care sector.  Whilst working in the mortgage and property markets he was introduced into care working with a developer refurbishing an existing care home that needed a full renovation.  Lee has also worked with a well-established domiciliary care company looking to move into the supported living sector, and he is guiding them through the process, advising on CQC registration, sourcing property through the Gateway and helping them to generally understand the sector.

Because of Lee's experience his role as Relationship Manager is to be the conduit between both the property and care sectors.
