CHP further strengthens team with appointment of new Executive Director for Property Management

Community Health Partnerships (CHP) has appointed Paul Hanrahan (MSc MIET) as Executive Director, with overarching responsibility for the property management team, which continues to deliver excellent service to customers across the CHP estate.

Paul, who took up the position at the end of November 2015, has 30 years’ experience working in the property sector and a post graduate MSc in Facility and Property Management from University College London. During the last 12 years Paul has specialised in banking, insurance and commercial property, managing buildings including the Shard, CityPoint and Broadgate Tower in London, from construction to operation. He remains involved with UCL in an alumni role.

Paul says: “The combination of leading the property team at CHP and working with both public and private sector investors is a rare and very exciting opportunity. CHP has a broad spectrum of over 300 assets which presents an opportunity to review and implement new, focused management strategies. I am sure the coming months will be demanding and I am looking forward to working with the national team and colleagues within CHP.”

CHP’s Chief Executive Sue O’Connell says: “We welcome Paul to the team and look forward to benefiting from his considerable experience. His property expertise further strengthens our offer as we continue to work closely with commissioners, partners and local government to unlock value from England’s health and social care estate and deliver savings for the NHS.”
