Olivia Harris, previously our Finance Director, has this week succeeded Jon Gooding as Chief Executive.

As Finance Director Olivia has been instrumental in our rapid expansion over the last 3 years, working closely in all of our high profile acquisitions and deals, including the New Era Estate. Olivia takes over whilst we are well on track to meeting our target of 1,000 homes for working Londoners by 2020.

In her new role Olivia will be responsible for leading all aspects of Dolphin’s strategic direction, its overall governance, housing and asset management and leading on key external stakeholder relationship management.

As well as developments already completed or in the pipeline, Olivia is working on a series of proposals for future acquisition and investment funding, as well as looking at proposals to take the organisation beyond its current 2020 target.

Olivia Harris, Chief Executive, comments:

I am delighted to take over one of the most innovative and ambitious providers of affordable housing and seek to build upon the work of my predecessor in delivering high quality, affordable to rent homes for those on low to middle incomes living or working within London. Dolphin is well on track to delivering 1,000 homes by 2020 and my priority will now be to look beyond that for future development opportunites
