We are delighted to welcome Steve Moseley and Anna Casbolt to the Board of Barking Riverside Limited, as well as Jason Wong who has joined us as Operations Director.
Steve has 25 years of experience in the housing sector and joined the senior management team of L&Q’s home ownership subsidiary in 2006. He has since worked in a variety of senior management roles across the organisation and is Executive Group Director, Governance and Transformation.
What stands out the most to Steve about Barking Riverside is its scale, “The moment you step into Barking Riverside you see it, both in terms of size and the ambition behind the project.”
With regards to joining the BRL Board, Steve says, “It is clear that a strong sense of community has already developed at Barking Riverside and that will continue to grow and mature as more homes and infrastructure are delivered. I think there will be a huge sense of pride from everyone involved in BRL to look back in later years at what has been achieved. I am very proud to be part of delivering that vision.”
Anna is excited at “the opportunity to make something real happen on the ground”.
She has worked in a range of public sector and not for profit organisations prior to joining the GLA in July 2020 as Assistant Director of Financial Services. This included ten years at Essex County Council where she led the social care finance and strategic finance teams. More recently, Anna spent four years as Resource Director in a housing association. For Anna, what stands out most about Barking Riverside is “that it is a really beautiful site which will be a great place to live. A great innovation with already encouraging levels of commitment and support”.
As she takes her place in the BRL Board, she says: “Accountants are often quite removed from the real delivery, so it is great to be involved in such an exciting, innovative development, which will make a huge difference to real people on a day-to-day basis.”
Jason Wong is BRL’s new Operations Director and joins the Executive leadership team. His responsibilities range from leading and managing all the construction, commercial costing and technical functions at Barking Riverside, as well as contributing to the strategic planning of all logistics and health and safety.
Jason has over 35 years of experience in planning, design, construction and the project/contract management of large-scaled infrastructure and transportation projects. His career has seen him work in the UK, Hong Kong and Singapore on various projects including airports, railways, and terminals/stations.
When asked ‘What project are you most excited to get involved with’, Jason replied, “It’s a bit of everything. What I am looking forward to most is improving each area in a far more efficient way. I want to use my experience to benefit Barking Riverside Limited as much as I can. Of course, I am also thrilled to be part of the leadership team and can’t wait to get started.”
