The Chartered Institute of Housing has chosen two new governing board members.
Will Nixon, of social landlord the Aspire Group, and Robert Grundy, of global real estate services firm Savills, were "openly recruited based on their skills and experience" and will take up their new roles immediately.
Mr Grundy heads the housing division at Savills, and sits on the Savills UK board. He said: “I’m delighted to be appointed to CIH’s governing board.
"I’ve worked in housing for over 30 years, 25 of them at Savills. With my real estate and property background I’m excited about the prospect of bringing a different perspective to CIH’s work. I want to help CIH open up new opportunities for its members in the rapidly-changing world of housing to complement its traditional strongholds.”
Mr Nixon, deputy chief executive at Newcastle-under-Lyme based Aspire, said: “I am thrilled to be joining the board at such an important time in CIH’s evolution and with the significant challenges facing the housing industry. I am looking forward to connecting with our members and ensuring that I add value to the direction and work of CIH.”
Commenting on the appointments, CIH chief executive Grainia Long said: “I’m really pleased that Robert and Will are joining our governing board. They bring masses of skills and experience as well as a fresh perspective which I know will help us achieve our aim of providing the best possible support for our members and for the housing profession.”
