Rooftop Housing appoints new chief executive

Evesham Editorial 18th Nov, 2016   0

A VALE housing association, which owns more than 6,500 homes, has appointed a new chief executive.

Boris Worrall has been announced as the successor to the long-serving Chief Executive of Rooftop Housing, Ian Hughes, who is retiring after 22 years in the role.

Mr Worrall is currently an Executive Director at Orbit, which looks after 35,000 homes across the country, and is also a Board Member of the Housing Action Charitable Trust and Vice-Chair of the National Housing Federation Midlands Committee.

He is expected to take up his new role in February next year.

Speaking following his appointment, Mr Worrall said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be taking up this role at an organisation delivering many new homes and making such a difference to local people and communities.

“I am also excited about Rooftop’s wider work in areas such as sustainability, older people and the traveller community. It’s a fantastic organisation and I look forward to working with the dedicated staff team, Board, customers and local partners in the near future.”

Nicola Inchbald, Chair of the Rooftop Housing Group Board, said: “We’re very excited to have Boris joining Rooftop, but we’ll also miss Ian Hughes when he retires and want to thank him for leaving Rooftop in such great shape.

“It’s a challenging time for any housing organisation and with Boris’s vision we know that we’ll be able to keep making a difference to the lives of our 15,000 residents and the communities in which they live.”
