Homes for Haringey resigns for Africa adventure
The chief executive of Homes for Haringey has resigned, the ALMO announced today.
Paul Bridge has been at the helm for six years. He is leaving to "explore other opportunities" including taking on a voluntary role in Africa.
Paul Bridge said in a statement: “After six years of leading Homes for Haringey as Chief Executive I have decided it is the right time for the future success of the company, and for me, to leave. Key to this decision was my desire to explore some other opportunities including my first project, which is likely to be working in a voluntary capacity in Africa.
"This decision has been hard to make and to reach. It has simply been the biggest honour and privilege to work with you to improve people’s lives, homes and communities within Haringey.”
Chair of the Board, Keith Jenkins, said “The board has with very great reluctance accepted Paul’s resignation as Chief Executive. We all, residents, staff and board, owe him an enormous debt of gratitude for all that he has done for us and we will miss his enthusiasm and commitment.
"The way we will work with LB Haringey is changing and we will be appointing a Managing Director to deliver those changes.”
Homes for Haringey was set up in April 2006 to manage Haringey’s council housing. It currently manages around 16,000 tenanted and 4,500 leasehold properties.
