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.
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.
After 20 years working in the financial services sector in the City, Leah has recently given up her City career to become a full-time property investor. Leah’s background in coordinating, organising and structuring projects has helped underpin the Supported Living Gateway business. She is excited to see how the team’s combined and diverse experience will enable The Gateway to help the supported living community.
Richard founded The Gateway along with the Mark, Russ and Leah. He is now a non-executive director of the company. Richard is an advocate for Supported Living Gateway and hopes, with our help, the whole supported living sector will benefit from improved communications and smoother relations between providers and developers.
Richard was a Military Officer, helicopter and jet pilot for 21 years, before becoming a successful property investor and developer. He is a firm supporter of the eradication of homelessness within the ex-service and veterans’ community and has a passion for providing homes for people across a spectrum of needs.
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.
