We are delighted to be able to notify you of two new colleagues who join Stephen Brown and Linda Wallace in the Senior Management Team for CDS.
Anne Hauxwell joins us as Finance Director. Anne Hauxwell said:
I am looking forward to working with everyone at CDS and building on the progress made by the Finance team over the last few months.
Anne has a very broad financial background, initially trained and worked with Deloitte and then a series of senior roles in well known companies such as Merlin Entertainments (London Eye, Tussauds, London Dungeon, Sealife), and USwitch – a leading price comparison and switching service, part of Zoopla Property Group. After these big company experiences, Anne was keen to join a smaller, value based business where she could contribute to the whole company and feel connected to the whole team. She will be assisted by Hilary Sabine who joined us as Financial Controller in May and who has already made a significant and positive impact.
Christina Friedenthal joins us as Operations Director responsible for all tenant, leaseholder and client services including property services. Christina Friedenthal said:
I am thrilled and honoured to join CDS and Linda Wallace in promoting Community Led Housing and ensuring we provide the best possible service to our residents and clients.
Christina has a very strong housing background although she originally started her career as a Social Worker in Washington State. She worked in social housing in the US for six years on a range of major regeneration projects where she supported resident involvement and services and then moved to Notting Hill HT where she has had roles in supported and general needs housing. She joins us from her role as Regional Head of Housing, responsible for all services to more than 7,000 homes. Christina was also keen to join a company that felt a good fit with her own values and where she could make a real and lasting difference. She will be assisted by Temi Awolaja (Housing Services Manager), Linda Bekkari (Repairs Service Manager) and Eoin Donnelly (Client Services Manager).
