Ms. Booker joins Peaks & Plains from Wythenshawe Community Housing Group where she was Assistant Director of Finance. Julie qualified as an accountant with BDO, and has worked both in practice and the private sector, bringing more than 20 years’ experience of finance in both commercial and not-for-profit organisations.
In her new position, Julie will continue to build on the existing foundations of the trust’s progressive five-year plan, streamlining financial processes with a focus on the regulatory aspects of the housing sector.
The profit-for-purpose housing provider currently oversees more than 5,000 homes across East Cheshire and the High Peak.
Ms Booker said:
Peaks & Plains stands out as one of the leading housing providers in the region and I was attracted by its ambitious plans for the future which are reinforced by a genuine passion from the team to create great places to live in the North West. I look forward to becoming an integral part of delivering the trust’s five-year plan.
Tim Pinder, Chief Executive at Peaks & Plains, added:
Julie’s wealth of sector experience and knowledge of financial regulation will prove invaluable as we grow and continue to invest in the regeneration of Macclesfield – improving existing homes and building innovative new homes across tenures. I have no doubt she will be a valuable asset to the team.
Peaks & Plains has now appointed 32 of the 42 new roles created as part of its commitment to delivering its five-year plan.
