Karen Heaney

Head of Investment and Compliance

Karen joined LGAH in January 2020 as part of the Operations Team as Head of Investment and Compliance. Karen is responsible for making sure that we offer high quality homes for our customers but also that our assets are safe, well managed and maintained in the longer term, protecting the commercial interests of the business. Karen’s role will develop and own the Asset Management strategy for LGAH, focussing on the specification of our homes as part of the design and build stage, the on-going property management of homes once handed over, the finance performance of our assets when in management and is working alongside the wider Operations team to build a relationship with our Management Providers and drive innovation in the way we deliver Affordable Housing. Karen is also responsible at a corporate level for Health and Safety across LGAH and work alongside external partners to continue to support and deliver our Health and Safety culture and performance.

“My passion for housing and property and asset management in particular, comes from a long career during which I have worked in housing management, maintenance, development, strategy, FM and various others. I have delivered stock transfers, mobilised large scale contracts and have learned so much in my career mainly working for large, national organisations, predominantly in England. 

LGAH is a fantastic group of people all focussed on the same goal, the ambition is high, the culture is brilliant and the operating model encourages collaboration and innovation. What is exciting for me is that we have a massive opportunity to do something different and to shape our own future. Everyone is up for it.”
