Phil joined Catalyst Housing Group in 2019 as Group Development Director and a member of its executive team. He leads the teams responsible for regeneration and the development of new homes, including sales and marketing.
Phil oversees the creation and implementation of Catalyst’s ambitious development strategy, a ten-year plan to deliver a multi-tenure, mixed-use development and regeneration programme of c.10,000 high-quality new homes across London and the South East, with a significant current pipeline of over 6,000 new homes.
Catalyst’s programme balances land-led opportunities – in the growth areas of the Ox-Cam Growth arc and south Midlands – with estate regeneration projects, maximising delivery on Catalyst’s and Local Authority partner’s land.
Phil is particularly enthusiastic about ensuring that the challenges of future development, including achieving net zero carbon and using modern methods of construction, are delivered using robust and replicable technological solutions which provide cost certainty and security for future tenants and owners.
Following Catalyst’s mergers with Aldwyck Housing Group in 2019 and Rosebery Housing Association in 2021, Phil led the successful integration of their development teams and the implementation of a new regional delivery model.
