Build to Rent membership organisation – the UKAA – has announced the appointment of Graham Sibley as its Operations and Marketing Director.

Starting the role this month, Graham will cover all UKAA operations including purpose-built homes in the Build to Rent, Single-family, Co-living and Later Living sectors. He will be working closely alongside CEO Brendan Geraghty.

Graham will also be responsible for leading the UKAA team to provide high levels of service to members and sponsors, while also growing the membership base. He will deliver a programme of conferences, webinars and seminars, and will help aid the base for the association to influence government on behalf of the sector.

“I am excited to be joining the UKAA at such a key time for the organisation and for the purpose-built accommodation sectors that its work covers. Increasingly, such accommodation is delivering value for investors, developers and residents alike, making it an essential component of the UK’s housing mix going forward – as well as numerous overseas markets. I look forward to leading the UKAA’s important operational work as these accommodation models continue to mature.”

“We are delighted to appoint Graham as the UKAA’s Operations and Marketing Director. We have a busy year ahead, with the delivery of the Build to Rent Code of Practice, the rebranding of the UKAA to reflect the scale of the sector and the progression of the UKAA Manifesto. Graham’s wealth of experience from within the UKAA and beyond will ensure sound operational management at this important time in the organisation’s growth.”
