Paul Kingston Passes the Baton to our New CEO
Following Mike Allen’s retirement as Chief Executive in 2021, and Tim Pinder as his short-lived replacement, Paul joined us as interim Chief Executive in October last year. During his calm re-consolidation of the Society, he has managed the rent overcharging issue to a successful outcome, gained the confidence of the staff and guided us through the appointment of our new Chief Executive, John Newstead.
We would like to thank him for his contribution, and wish him well in, due to us, his delayed retirement!
Welcome to John Newstead
We are delighted that John Newstead has now joined us as our new Chief Executive Officer. John brings many years experience in affordable housing, particularly in the Care sector, and we look forward to working with him.
"I’m delighted to be joining such a professional and caring organisation with a great history. I’m aware that there are challenges ahead for all social housing providers, but I am committed to working with the staff and Board members to ensure we continue to meet local housing need and provide decent affordable homes. I have a strong social housing and care background and will bring experience and knowledge in these areas to help the Society to continue to provide safe, secure, and happy communities for our tenants. I’m pleased to be part of a progressive organisation that is at the forefront of Supported Housing provision in Norwich". - John Newstead
