A housing stalwart with more than 40 years’ experience of the sector has been appointed to lead Futures Housing Group.
Tony Taylor, who has been a Board Director with the East Midlands-based housing association since 2009, has been selected as the new Chair of Futures’ board.
Fellow Board Director, Sheila Hyde, has been appointed to the role of Vice-Chair. The pair have served in the interim roles since January 2017.
Tony said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the role of Group Chair of Futures Housing Group in this, our 10th anniversary year.
“It has been fantastic to see and play a part in Futures’ exciting story over the last few years and I genuinely can’t wait to help lead the organisation into the next chapter.
“We are recognised as a high performing and achieving organisation and I am committed to helping us build on these solid foundations.”
Sheila, who joined the board in 2013, added: “I’m thrilled to be appointed to the role of Vice-Chair at a time when Futures is growing and achieving high performance.
“I’m really excited about the future. We have a great combination of talented teams, strong leadership, robust finances and a great appetite and ambition to take the organisation forward and to keep growing.”
Tony and Shelia were appointed to their new roles at the Group’s board meeting, where Board Director Steve Hale was also confirmed as the Chair of the Asset Investment Committee.
Steve will also serve as the Chair of the Board of Limehouse Developments, the Group’s property development company.
