Ceri specialises in governance, regulation, strategy and research and her work with Campbell Tickell spans the social housing, charity and sports sectors. Immediately prior to joining CT (initially as an associate consultant) she was a consultant with PwC, supporting clients with projects such as local government re-organisation, operating model transformation, contract management and process redesign. She also has extensive experience as a non-executive director and was until recently a member of the Regulatory Board for Wales (which oversees the regulation of Welsh housing associations).
Ceri’s earlier career was principally in social housing, including front line housing management, policy, strategy, investment, academic teaching and research; as well as working as a consultant she has held roles in housing associations, local authorities, the Housing Corporation and a university. She consequently has an extremely thorough understanding of the housing sector and its policy context and can apply a broad perspective to the issues facing housing organisations.
Ceri’s non-executive experience includes roles on the Board of two housing associations, as chair of a homelessness charity and a regional assembly supported housing body, as an elected member of a University Faculty Board and as a member of a regional Chartered Institute of Housing board. She is currently Vice Chair of GreenSquare Group.
Ceri has strong core consulting skills. She is experienced at reading organisational culture accurately and grasping quickly how organisations and processes work – and how they might be improved. She has excellent communication and listening skills, integrity, emotional intelligence and a passion for delivering real value for clients.
She holds an MSc in Housing Practice (with distinction) and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Housing (FCIH).
