Geanna Bray

Director of Housing Care and Support Services

Geanna joined Saha in June 2007 as our Director of Housing Services. Geanna has overall responsibility for four main service areas: Our Agency Managed and Independent Quality Inspectorate (IQI) team; General Needs and Older People’s Services; Directly Managed Services (which include Foyers and Supported Housing Schemes); and our Customer Service Centre team.

Geanna graduated from Kingston Uni with a BA (Hons) degree in Applied Social Science and then followed this up with a post-graduate qualification in Housing from the London School of Economics. Geanna has been a member of the Chartered Institute of Housing since 1989.

When at home, there isn’t really time for a lot of ‘down time’, but apart from walking her beautiful wire-haired fox terrier Hector, when she can, Geanna likes to watch her son play cricket, and listen to his band.

What Saha means to me:

“When I think of what Saha means to me, it’s all about the inspiration of our mission ‘transforming lives’. When I think of Saha generally, I think ‘people’ – in particular, our amazing residents and all of our incredible staff teams who work with them to achieve our mission and deliver great services. I feel fortunate to work with people who are so committed, and passionate about improving performance, and looking critically at what we do to take us from good to great.”
