John joined the Board in 2016 and is also Chair of the Audit Sub-Commttee.
John has over 20 years experience in the housing sector, currently as Finance Director for a Glasgow based Housing Association and previously as the Housing Finance Manager of a Local Authority which manages over 12,000 properties.
These roles require an awareness and understanding of the pressures on social housing providers and the importance of planning and managing these to ensure that quality services can continue to be provided over the longer term.
He is committed to ensuring that investment decisions and the services provided by the Association deliver value for money to our customers, are sustainable in the longer term and that associated risks are managed and reported in a transparent way. It is important to recognise that the best housing providers are about much more than just houses, they are about supporting communities, regeneration and empowering people to make positive changes in their lives. John hopes that he can help ensure that Queens Cross Housing Association continues to do this for many years to come.
