NEC Software Solutions has appointed Brendan Sarsfield, CEO of Peabody until his retirement from the housing provider last summer, as a strategic advisor.
Roger Birkinshaw, executive director for government and housing, NEC Software Solutions, said, “We’re committed to understanding the shifting issues and requirements for social housing and finding the best ways to solve them. Brendan’s career has been dedicated to social housing and has a great track record of championing social purpose and delivering improved social housing.”
Brendan Sarsfield, strategic advisor, NEC Software Solutions, said, “There are many challenges for housing providers to navigate, from managing risk to achieving carbon neutral operations, which mean they need IT systems to up their games.
“Historically, the housing sector has underinvested in technology so it has been good to see NEC Group investing almost £100 million in developing its products and services.”
