Housing group appoints new chair
Published by Max Salsbury for 24dash.com in Housing
Magna Housing Group has appointed a new chairman.
Adam Peat joined the Magna Audit Committee in 2009, and was chosen to serve on the board in 2011.
He joined the Whitehall civil service in 1972 after graduating and was head of the Welsh Office housing division, chief executive of Tai Cymru, funder and regulator of Welsh housing associations and director of the Welsh National Assembly’s local government group.
In 2003, he left the civil service to become Wales’s first public services ombudsman, a role for which he was awarded an OBE in the 2009 New Year’s honours list, following his retirement in 2008.
Mr Peat said: "Much of my career has been concerned with social housing, and I believe strongly in the importance of affordable housing. I joined the board at Magna because I wanted to help provide affordable housing in the area where I now live.
"Magna exists to help people meet their housing needs and aspirations. I hope that in my time as chairman we will be able to improve still further the quality of services we give to our tenants and the communities we serve."
