Group appoints new Chief Executive

Grand Union Housing Group (GUHG) is delighted to announce that Aileen Evans is to become its new Chief Executive.

Aileen, who has a career spanning over 30 years in housing and has been with the Group since 1999, will make the step up from her current role as Operations Director at GUHG in June.

GUHG began looking for a new Chief Executive after current incumbent, Alan Humphreys, announced he will be retiring after 18 years in the role.

Mark Webster, Group Chairman, said: “Aileen is passionate about providing affordable homes and services for those people in our communities who are in need and I’m sure that Grand Union Housing Group will continue to grow and be successful under her leadership.

“Both I and the boards are looking forward to working with Aileen to build on the tremendous legacy of Alan Humphreys, when he retires in June.”

The announcement comes at the end of a standout 12 months for the Group in which it took on a new subsidiary, Rockingham Forest Housing, and doubled its development programme.
