Rachael Dennis FCCA
Chief Operating Officer
Rachael is responsible for ensuring effective and robust financial processes to support the business and to comply with the requirements of the Homes & Communities Agency, Greater London Authority and Catalyst’s other regulators.
In May 2015 Rachael was instrumental in securing £50m of funding via the Affordable Homes Guarantees Programme (AHGP), at a cheaper rate than the UK government pays for its debt.
Rachael has extensive experience in housing finance, business planning and analysis, management reporting, risk management and governance. In her previous role, at Richmond Housing Partnership, Rachael secured the company’s first grant-funded growth programme.
Rachael has 15 years of experience in finance roles. She has held non-executive director positions in the NHS as well as in the housing sector, and is currently on the board of trustees of two London-based arts charities.
