Social care property consultancy Carterwood has appointed Henry Crosby as a data and technology manager. Crosby has worked part-time for Carterwood for a year, while completing a three-year PhD at the University of Warwick.
His new role focuses on supporting Carterwood’s technology functions and includes the strategic and operational maintenance of all backend data within the business, including the introduction of new data for Carterwood’s products. Crosby will also support director Ben Hartley with the production of innovations and will work closely with the R&D department to ensure timely, accurate and integral data.
Carterwood director Ben Hartley said: “Data is integral to our consultancy work, providing the foundation for all our market reports. Henry’s appointment will help ensure our research processes stay at the forefront of the industry, and give our clients peace of mind that our data management, quality and sourcing are outstanding.”
Crosby’s research topic focused on artificial intelligence and considers the effect of road distance and travel time on statistical models in the real estate industry. Carterwood says his work has been used to improve the theoretical basis of many spatial statistical and machine learning models, as well as the betterment of commercial UK real estate automated valuation models.
Crosby said: “Carterwood is an industry leaders on the effective use of data to understand the care home and older people’s housing markets in the UK. I am excited to utilise the latest technologies, including some state-of-the-art approaches that are not yet used in industry, to better leverage the outstanding data that Carterwood already possess. This means that we can continue to produce reports containing high-quality analytics, but now at a faster pace and on a much larger scale.”
