Bradford-based housing provider Incommunities has appointed David Cawthray as its new IT and digital transformation director.
Cawthray joins from Accent Housing where he was director of digital innovation for four years.
Prior to that he was at Bradford Council, first as IT director and then as director of transformation.
He started his career working for Pace plc, based in Salts Mill, Saltaire, near Shipley, where he worked for 17 years before deciding that he wanted to move into a role with more social purpose.
Executive director of business operations, Sara Sheard, said: “I am delighted David is joining us at such an exciting time in our journey as we develop our five-year corporate strategy where we really want to transform how we use technology to transform the customer experience.
“He will bring extensive experience in developing digital transformation strategy which will be of immense value as we continue on our journey to drive change and improve services for our customers.”
Cawthray added: “I have found social housing to be such an exciting, rewarding and challenging sector to work in. I am very much looking forward to joining Incommunities. I believe that technology can be used to deliver a modern customer focused service while freeing up colleagues to concentrate on customer and community needs.”
He will begin his new role in October 2023.
