DARREN WHITFIELD HOMEOWNERSHIP MANAGER
I re-joined Accent in August 2016 having originally worked here previously for 10 years before leaving back in 2001.
During my time away, I worked for both large and small Housing Associations in managerial roles in both Homeownership and Asset Management. I managed a Homeownership team in Sheffield whilst working for the Guinness Partnership and then made the move up to Leeds managing the Repairs and Maintenance service provided to tenants from Leeds to Newcastle.
In 2014 whilst working for Connect Housing I established a new repairs and maintenance team, which delivered both day-to-day repairs and planned and decoration works to over 3,000 properties across West Yorkshire.
At Accent, my role is to develop and enhance the services we provide to our homeowners whilst balancing this against commercial motivations to ensure our services remains sustainable in the future.
