I was 27 years old when I was first appointed to a housing association board. By 29 I was Chair. I held my first Chief Executive’s role at 31.
I’m proud to work for a brilliant sector. I’m grateful for the perspective I gain from leading a large landlord and now chairing the g15 group of large London housing associations.
The talent is there, but it’s not getting to the very top. This is both a sector reputational issue as well as an organisational failure issue.
