The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) has appointed a new director of operations.

Julie Soutter, currently head of operations at the Technology Strategy Board, the government’s innovation agency, will take up the role in September.

Ms Soutter is a finance and management professional who is currently responsible for the design and delivery of grant programmes to industry and research organisations worth more than £300 million a year.

She has previously worked for ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) and has also held senior roles in the NHS in both finance and strategy.

Ms Soutter said: “I am really pleased to be appointed and am looking forward to working with CIH colleagues and members on the next phase of its development in such a vibrant industry. My role will be key to developing and delivering a strategy that continues to improve financial strength and sustainability, building on the existing strong culture of professional standards and quality.”

CIH chief executive Grainia Long added: “I’m really happy that Julie is joining us. She has exactly the kind of skills and experience we need to make sure that CIH is being run as efficiently and effectively as possible, so that we can deliver our plans to improve the support we offer to members.”
