We start 2019 with a new CEO as Ian McDermott joins us from Aldwyck Housing. Ian brings with him over 30 years’ experience working in housing nationally.
Speaking about his appointment, Ian said: ‘I am absolutely delighted to be taking over as CEO. I very much look forward to working with the Catalyst team, and their stakeholders, to build on very firm foundations and deliver an ambitious agenda for the future.’
Over the last six months, Ian has been working closely with our previous Chief Executive, Rod Cahill, who retired at the end of 2018 after 35 years at Catalyst. Ian has attended staff conferences and training, giving employees the opportunity to hear more about what he has planned for 2019.
