BROMSGROVE District Housing Trust has a new chief executive after the current one – Mark Robertson – retired from his post after three successful years in the role.
The town’s largest provider of affordable housing has appointed Graeme Anderson who has worked alongside Mr Robertson when the trust was first established.
Mr Anderson has more than 20 years’ experience of the social housing sector, has been an integral part of the BDHT team for over three quarters of his career and is a member of the Chartered Institute of Housing.
He is also heavily involved in the local community, acting as chair of the Bromsgrove Partnership and vice chair of the North Worcestershire Serious and Organised Crime Forum.
He said it had been an ‘incredible honour’ to work alongside Mr Robertson and to see the positive position the trust was in after successfully navigating the challenges posed by the pandemic.
“Our customers, our talented people and the local community remain at the forefront of our business and I look forward to continuing to drive it forward and continuing to enhance our services and offering.”
Mary Miller, chair of the bdht board, added, despite advertising on the open market, Mr Anderson was the obvious choice to be the next chief executive, having been a valuable asset to the trust for 17 years.
“He has proven his commitment to not only BDHT, but also the local community and we are confident that BDHT is in extremely capable hands with Graeme as it enters its new chapter.”
