Hyde Chief Executive to take up new role at Homes England

Posted on 09 June 2021

Our CEO, Peter Denton, is to leave Hyde to become the next Chief Executive of Homes England.

Peter, who joined Hyde as CFO (Chief Financial Officer) in February 2017 from Starwood Capital Group, has a reputation for his innovative approach to capital funding and passionate about forming partnerships within and outside the sector to secure funding to build more much-needed affordable homes. In his two years as Chief Executive he has overseen the establishment of our 30 year strategic plan, been a founding member of sector JV Evera and the 300,000 homes Greener Futures Partnership and has spearheaded our pioneering deal with M&G to secure a half billion pound pipeline of shared ownership homes.

“Although it is incredibly hard to leave Hyde, this is the right decision,” Peter Denton said. “Heading up Homes England means that I can be instrumental in delivering more and better homes on a national scale. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Hyde and am incredibly proud of all we have achieved. I shall miss the people here more than I can say, but I know they will carry on the good work and go on to achieve even bigger and better things.”

Hyde Chair, Alan Collett said: “Peter has made a huge impact in his time as Chief Executive of the Hyde Group. He has been innovative in his approach and driven in his ambition to provide more homes in London and the South East. This appointment will give his passion, enthusiasm and talents a national platform and I know that he will make an enormous contribution to delivering more and better homes that the country desperately needs.”
