Niyi migrated into business development over 15 years ago and has pioneered procedures in securing financial viability of large residential schemes for a number of Housing Associations. In this period, he has worked on over 2,000 units of housing all over the UK and Africa.
Before joining Dartwood, Niyi worked for a number of major organisations including Willmott Dixon (now Inspace Partnerships), Soha Housing, James Butcher HA, Moseley & District Churches, Black roof Community HA and John Laing Construction.
By using experiences gained in the construction industry, Niyi has successfully managed the business development of companies like Ibis Proj Services, The Abbeyfield Society and Bramall Construction.
One of Niyi’s main strengths is the ability to tackle complex development processes in the area of transaction structure, acquisition and procurement, by applying proactive solutions acquired over the years.
