Maxine and Julian both now work in Savills Governance, Risk and Regulation team, which is led by former assistant director at the Regulator of Social Housing, Kelsey Walker.
Prior to her new role, Maxine was the Director of Regulatory Operations at the Regulator of Social Housing, where she was responsible for the delivery of planned and reactive regulatory engagement and in preparing for consumer regulation changes. Maxine brings a great deal of knowledge to Savills and is known as being a practical, proportionate and pragmatic regulator, which will help her support clients to understand the new regulatory changes.
Julian joins the team after working at Savills for nearly three years as an associate consultant. During this time, Julian has developed and delivered a wide range of consumer standards reviews and corporate governance assignments. Julian’s new role will see him lead these areas, with specialist input from across the Savills team.
Kelsey Walker, Director at Savills Affordable Housing Consultancy, said: “We’re very excited to welcome Maxine and Julian to our Governance, Risk and Regulation team. They both bring exceptional talent and strong understanding from their past roles and will be heavily involved in helping our clients to navigate a period of significant development for their organisations.”
Maxine Loftus, Director at Savills Affordable Housing Consultancy, said: “I am thrilled to take up my role with Savills. Having worked in a housing association and at the regulator, I am now really keen to see another perspective and am looking forward to working with Savills’ clients.”
Julian Paine, Director at Savills Affordable Housing Consultancy, said: “I’m delighted to be joining Savills, having worked closely with a wide range of clients on governance and consumer regulation matters for some time. I’ve always been impressed with the high-quality, bespoke services provided by the Savills team and I’m really looking forward to contributing more to their delivery and development.”
