Teresa Parker

Chief Commercial Housing Officer

Tell us a bit about your background

I have extensive experience as a leader in supported housing management, and more recently in commercial asset management within the NHS. Throughout my career I have undertaken leadership roles at board level in complex, national, and local organisations where the successful transformation of services has been key.

I have worked as Managing Director Vital Services at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital, managing the estates, facilities and medical engineers services throughout the pandemic at two of the Birmingham hospitals.  In the past my housing roles have included Director at the Abbeyfield Society and National Head of Housing for Housing 21.

Teresa says…

My family were firm advocates for Hft during the 1970s. Since then I have retained a  sense of the important role play by  Hft in enabling people to enjoy fulfilling lives.  It is a privilege to be joining Hft at this exciting time for the charity. I look forward to working with our wonderful staff to ensure we adapt and respond to current challenges in the best interests of the people we support.
