Futures Housing Group has announced it is seeking a new chief executive to succeed Lindsey Williams who is to step down after 20 years in the role.
Williams has run the organisation since 2003 when Amber Valley Housing was formed through a large-scale voluntary stock transfer. She continue in her role into 2024 to support the effective handover to the organisation’s new leader.
Under her tenure, the organisation has grown to provide 10,337 homes, having developed new properties since its very first year.
Over the years, the organisation has also achieved top regulatory ratings, launched a commercial development company, a co-owned training company, and brought Daventry & District Housing into the fold to create Futures Housing Group.
Mike Stevenson, chair of Futures Housing Group board, said: “I wish Lindsey the very best and I’d like to thank her for her commitment to Futures and its colleagues and customers over so many years. She has created a lasting legacy with a culture that fosters innovation, holds true to our social purpose and brings out the best in people, whilst ensuring effective leadership and financial stability.
“Only last month we retained the top ratings for governance and viability from the Regulator of Social Housing after our latest In-Depth Assessment, and with a new modern office move complete, Investor in People Platinum status and new ambitious corporate plan in process, Futures’ next chief executive has a fantastic platform to build from.
“To keep our connections rooted in the community, Lindsey has always ably balanced her chief executive hat alongside many other social purpose roles, including board roles as vice chair of a local hospice and most recently as president of East Midlands Chamber.
“I am sure with Lindsey’s passion and ambition the opportunity to further explore this social purpose drive once the handover is complete, is a new chapter she will relish and equally succeed at.”
The organisation says it will begin recruitment for the role shortly.
