Halton Housing has announced that Nick Atkin will be leaving the organisation in 2019. Nick has been successful in securing a new role as Chief Executive at Yorkshire Housing.
Ingrid Fife, Group Board Chair said “I’m sad that we will be losing our talented Group Chief Executive, but also delighted for Nick that he has been recognised and successful in a move to head up a large regional housing association.
Through his tenure Halton Housing has become known nationally as an innovative and successful housing organisation. He has led a strong team that delivered its promises from the start and has gone on to respond to the challenges presented through an era of austerity. A business that has grown in value tenfold to £320 million, delivered a modern digital business model and now provides an additional 1,200 homes across Halton.
The Group Board is now reviewing options and timescales for leaving arrangements and will announce these in due course.
On behalf of the Board I express our sincere thanks and very best wishes to Nick for his excellent leadership. The team at Halton will continue to push the boundaries to help our communities thrive by delivering excellent services and new homes.”
Nick said “I have had an amazing time at Halton and had the privilege to work with so many talented people. I can’t thank enough the Board for the confidence and support they have shown, which has enabled us to jointly achieve so much. I am sad to be leaving so many colleagues who have also become friends, but I’m also looking forward to returning to my Yorkshire roots.”
