Mark Howden, previously Director of Place and Deputy Chief Executive, will be taking up the role of Interim Chief Executive with immediate effect. This follows the decision by former Chief Executive, Tim Pinder, to step down after a period away from the business.
The Trust has recently appointed a new Assistant Director of Development, Justine Gore, and are in the process of recruiting a new Executive Director of Operations to join the executive leadership team, working alongside Julie Booker the existing Director of Resources.
Together the executive team will support John Hudson, Chairman of Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, to maintain its strong position as a profit-for-purpose housing provider and undertake a strategic review of operations across the organisation.
John Hudson, Chairman of Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, said:
At the Trust, we are now focused on moving forward and continuing to provide new, safe and affordable homes as part of our commitment to be a great landlord. I have been very impressed with the leadership qualities that Mark has demonstrated during the recent period of change and we are confident that the new Executive Team under his direction are best placed to take forward the Trust’s ambitious plans for the future.
