Rob juggles CHY (Construction & Housing Yorkshire) and other social entrepreneurial activity with bed time stories, cooking and reminiscing about younger years spent as a drummer in a Punk Rock band. Rob has worked in physical and social regeneration for 17 years and went on to set up CHY in 2006. Partnership working and social value are at the heart of his experience and expertise: ensuring projects and people achieve the combined objectives of all sectors, while benefiting the communities they serve. Rob’s influence within the construction industry and its stakeholders was reflected when CHY won 8 regional and national Constructing Excellence Awards for its collaborative approach to developing and delivering Social Value in the built environment and Rob himself won the National Achiever of the Year in 2011. Rob’s passionate goal has always been not to be needed.
