Public-sector IT company Coactiva has created its first dedicated role for the social housing sector with the appointment of Kevin Gilhooly as its senior business development manager for the sector. Gilhooly’s appointment is accompanied by six other new recruits, each addressing different public-sector areas.
Before joining Coactiva, Gilhooly spent a decade at Housing Partners where, among other things, he was responsible for launching HomeSwapper, the national mutual exchange service which is now used by over 300,000 tenants and the majority of housing providers and local authorities to help tenants find a new home.
Ray Fielding, CEO, Coactiva, said, “When Coactiva became part of Callcredit Information Group in 2014, it was with the intention to provide both businesses with the opportunity to combine our offerings and to increase our joint presence in the public sector. Over the last year, it became clear that bringing our expertise together was an excellent decision.”
