Our Chief Executive and Operations Director are responsible for delivering the strategy and policies as agreed by the Waverley Housing Board. They are supported by a Senior Management Team assigned to manage the delivery and smooth day-to-day running of operations.
I was delighted to get the opportunity to join Waverley Housing in January 2018 following a 6 year stint as Chief Executive of Social Enterprise Scotland. Prior to that, from 2004 through to 2011, I held the post of Chief Executive with Glasgow South East Regeneration Agency which was formed from a merger of Castlemilk Economic Development Agency and Gorbals Initiative. I joined CEDA from Inverclyde Council where I had been working as Head of Economic Development between 1998 and 2004.
In each of those roles I have worked with, and learned from, some outstanding organisations and formidably talented people, particularly, in the social housing sector. I’m thrilled now, to be part of Waverley Housing, a well governed, well managed and high performing business. Undoubtedly though the attraction was to join an organisation, and sector, which puts people at the heart of everything it does. I live, with my family, in the Scottish Borders and am a Board member of Resilient Scotland and previously have been a Board member of Cassiltoun Trust and Berwickshire Housing Association.
