Kim has over ten years’ experience in the Community Housing sector at a senior level. She has been directly involved in strategic planning and implementation of initiatives to transform a CHP from a property management provider to a leading Tier 1 CHP owner provider and developer under the National Regulatory System for Community Housing Providers (NRSCH) as well as restructuring of a supported independent living provider’s business model to be sustainable under the requirements of the NDIS framework.
Her roles have ranged across the senior levels of corporate governance (including quality and risk management), corporate support (including finance), operations (property and tenancy management) and development (new business and management). During her tenure she has given a provider perspective in local and national forums about CHP business and financing models as well as various federal and local government advisory groups in the formation of: NRSCH; NRAS; the Charity Act 2013 and local Residential Tenancy Act and Affordable Housing planning.
This included an overseas study tour with the ACT Minister for Planning and Land Management on Transit Orientated Development (and having community housing development sites/organisations visits added to the agenda) and being invited to sit on the ACT Property Council Committee and Residential Committees.
With a mindset for innovation and growth, these roles have allowed her to adapt and develop business models that balance risk, financial sustainability and growth (NEW housing stock) imperatives to deliver quality options for both rent and sale to the organisations and communities she serves.
Currently working for an Aboriginal Community Housing Owner Provider, Kim will share her experiences and provide insight into the critical success factors in collaborating with government, industry and community to deliver new housing developments.
