Our management team

Two Rivers Housing is run by an Executive Team of three directors, led by Chief Executive Garry King.

The team is overseen by a Board of trustees and underpinned by senior managers who are responsible for the day-to-day operational activities of the organisation.

Garry King
Chief Executive

Garry has extensive knowledge and expertise in the housing sector and has led Two Rivers Housing since its inception in 2003. He was previously Housing Manager at Forest of Dean District Council.

He is a firm believer of the positive impact good quality housing has on people's well-being and is passionate about improving the quality of life for Two Rivers residents through homes, education, employment opportunities and supporting wider community amenities.

When he's not at work, Garry is interested in environmental and sustainability matters and is an enthusiastic gardener. He also enjoys walking and golf, and he sings and plays guitar in a rock band.
