Catherine Webster has been named Chief Executive Officer of PfP Capital, the Social Value and ESG-focused real estate fund manager that is part of the UK's leading social enterprise, Places for People.

Catherine joins PfP Capital in January 2023 from Quintain, where she is Executive Director for Strategy and Investment, where she is responsible for company strategy, financing, and investment activities. Catherine has 30 years of experience in real estate investing and finance, including roles in private equity, fund management, and investment banking at Hudson Advisors (Lone Star Funds), TIAA, and Lehman Brothers Global Real Estate. 

She has pan-European expertise in the residential and commercial sectors, as well as as an owner, joint venture partner, fund investor, mezzanine, and senior lender. PfP Capital now manages £600 million across three funds and has ambitious expansion plans.

Greg Reed, Group Chief Executive Officer of Places for People and board member of PfP Capital said:

“Catherine is a stellar appointment for us. Since it was founded five years ago, PfP Capital has been successful, and we now have big growth plans; we have the opportunity to build on our success to date and really scale up the business.

“We have a brilliant team in place at PfP Capital, and we’re grateful for the work and vision of former MD Chris Jones, who founded the PfP Capital business out of Places for People in 2017 and retired earlier this year. I know the experience and leadership Catherine brings will add greatly to our team and really drive us forward.

Catherine added: “I’m delighted to be joining PfP Capital to lead the next stage of its journey. PfP Capital has established itself as a key player with a strong reputation in the market. The great team has built partnerships with key institutional players and laid a solid foundation for future growth, as we look to both grow the funds we already have and add new ones. Backed by the power of Places for People, the potential for growth from this solid foundation is massive. Above all, our strong social purpose will benefit both the communities we serve and the wider UK society.
