RESI Awards Winners 2017

Residential Personality of the Year

David Montague (L&Q)

This man has redefined what a housing association is. At the end of last year, he completed L&Q’s merger with East Thames, pledging to build 100,000 new homes, and finalised a £2.6bn refinancing - the biggest ever for a housing association. A few months later, he spearheaded the acquisition of Gallagher Estates for £505m, cementing L&Q’s position as not just one of the most active housing associations but one of the UK’s largest developers by volume. Collecting the award on the night, Montague said: “The property world is really so new to housing associations, so to see so many nominated so frequently in each of the categories and then for me to win this award is an extraordinary thing.”
