Chris is currently a director of a community development charity Oasis, where he has responsibility for finance, strategy, HR and property issues. Having started his career as an investment banker, he brings to CAYSH a high level of financial numeracy, and after 10 years of various management roles in the third sector a thorough understanding of how to deliver social outcomes. His passion for tackling homelessness was sparked by working for Crisis, as a project manager and then leading on developing new projects nationally. He has developed projects in Ghana and the US, and has helped set up several social enterprises in the UK. He is particularly interested in the role business can play in addressing social problems. He holds a MSc in Development Management from the OU, and a BA in Economics and Management from Oxford University.
