New director roles to focus on communities through regional lens

One of the UK’s largest national housing associations has created five new director roles to enhance its regional focus.

Home Group, which has around 56,000 homes across England and Scotland, has already appointed four directors – the North East, North West, Teesside and Yorkshire, and the South, and is in the process of appointing for Midlands and Central.

The new roles are part of a long-term plan to further increase engagement and interaction with its customers and communities.

Three of the four appointments are from within Home Group and are part of the organisation’s ‘grow our own’ policy.

Andy Hall has been appointed director for the North East, Katherine Hernandez for Teesside and Yorkshire and Lisa Russell for the North West.

The new Director for the South is Emma Solomons who has worked in housing for over 25 years, with the likes of A2Dominion, Southern and most recently PA Housing.

Nusheen Hussain, Executive Director, Customers and Communities, said: “We are proud of the level of engagement we have with our customers, as well as the level of involvement they have in the organisation.

“And with these new roles we’ll be able to build on that and deliver the thriving communities which our customers deserve, as well as enhance our links with regional stakeholders.

“Andy, Katherine and Lisa know their respective regions very well already, but these new roles will allow them to focus specifically on delivering our ‘Customer Promise’ and working more closely with other organisations in their regions who also want to support their communities.

“I’m also delighted to welcome Emma who has a wealth of experience across housing. She aims to use that experience to enhance our communities in the south.

All four directors took up their roles last month.
