Lorna Guess

Business Development Manager


Lorna has worked within the housing and social care sector for 23 years, starting in outreach support for those with substance misuse and offenders, followed by managerial positions within operational delivery and later developing into business development.

Before joining Mersten, Lorna worked for national and regional social care charities including; Look Ahead Support and Care, Nacro, Community Integrated Care, Catalyst Support as well as a leading ALMO, Stockport Homes. This has allowed her to support and work with most client groups which has now given her a vast understanding of how to support and provide housing solutions for all vulnerable people.

This wealth of experience in her more recent roles in business development and partnership working, translates when working in partnership with clients, stakeholders and those supported needs.

Lorna likes to spend walking her dog on the beach, horse riding and trying out new restaurants with family and friends. She likes sport and keeping fit with spinning classes.
