Gary Goggins has been appointed as Executive Director of Property at Catalyst housing association, following its successful merger with Aldwyck Housing Group. The new appointment completes a new executive team for Catalyst, which now owns and manages over 32,000 homes across London and the south east.
Gary is promoted to his new position after serving as Aldwyck’s Executive Director of Property Services since 2007, having first joined the housing association in 2006 as Head of Property and Procurement.

Originally from a construction and contracting background, Gary has been involved in the successful delivery of large scale asset management and maintenance for the past 20 years. Gary moved into the housing association sector in 2001 where he worked as Technical Services Director for Hanover Group for five years before joining Aldwyck.
Gary said: “I am delighted to be part of the new executive team at Catalyst, it’s an exciting time for the organisation and I am very much looking forward to working with my new colleagues to make sure our customers get the best out of their homes.”
