Welcome to our new Chair

Andrew Foster’s term of office as Chair of The Community Housing Group Board has come to an end, and we now welcome Ann Bennett, appointed as our new Board Chair.

Ann has a wealth of experience in social housing and has held senior roles at a number of housing associations and local authorities, including Solihull Community Housing and Worcester City Council, as well as being a Lead Housing Inspector for the Audit Commission.

Ann retired in 2017 and is currently a board member with Trinity Housing Association and Kensington & Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation. She is also a Chartered Institute of Housing Mentor.

Ann said: “I am really thrilled about joining Community Housing at this exciting time for the organisation. My aim is to ensure that we deliver on the commitments in our new Corporate Plan, which includes putting our customers at the heart of everything we do”.

Matt Cooney, Chief Executive, Community Housing said: “We believe that Ann’s track record of helping organisations to achieve their potential will help us continue to take our organisation forward and we welcome the experience she will bring from her long career in social housing”.
