Introducing Dot Dot Dot’s New Board of Directors
At Dot Dot Dot Property we are very proud to welcome four new non-executive directors to our board. Josh Babarinde, Lisa Taylor, Alistair Stuart and Tony Curzon Price will be bringing their wide-ranging skills and experience to oversee our strategy and to make sure we are on track to achieve our goals.
Alongside them, our Chief Executive Peter Brown and Head of Services Mark Ackroyd are being promoted to executive directors, with Mark taking the new job title Director of Services.
Founder Katharine Hibbert will continue as a director and will chair the board.
Katharine said: “This is an exciting time for Dot Dot Dot. Over the past three years, we have dramatically increased the scale of our work, providing hundreds more people with good, inexpensive homes, and supporting them to give tens of thousands of hours to causes they care about.
So this the ideal moment to develop our governance structures to make sure we are doing a great job of the work we already have, and to get ready for further growth in both scale and impact.
I am delighted that this group of excellent non-executives have chosen to get involved and to apply their diverse perspectives to our opportunities and challenges. I am also very grateful to Peter and Mark for their continuing contribution to Dot Dot Dot and am glad to have this opportunity to appoint them as directors. I am very much looking forward to working as part of this board to guide the organisation to do even more and better in future.”
