Both Kent and Chris have been instrumental in successfully launching our first developments. I am delighted that Chris will be staying on as a Non-Executive Director. ”
Kent has extensive experience in residential and commercial property development, working at Director level for civil engineering, utility contracting organisations and a national housebuilder. He has further developed his expertise in the private market rent sector and has gained valuable experience in the not for profit sector whilst working for housing associations.

Red Door Ventures has now completed its first two developments, The Tanneries in Stratford and Nelson Cottages in East Ham. Its third, Gregory House on Libra Road in Plaistow will launch in Spring 2017. The healthy pipeline of new developments across Newham will bring much needed new accommodation to help relieve the housing pressure in London.
