Forth Housing Association has appointed Sharon Brady-Wardrope as its new interim director.
Sharon has a more than 30 years’ of multi-industry experience, primarily in the delivery and management of complex projects and services, as well as organisational change and improvement.
She started her career as a building engineer in the construction industry, before completing a post-graduate diploma in Housing Studies at Glasgow University, which Sharon says sparked a passion to work in social housing.
Sharon has since built over more than 20 years’ experience working as a senior manager with various registered social landlords promoting accessible and inclusive housing.
Commenting on her appointment, Sharon said: “I am delighted to join Forth as interim director and to work with the dedicated staff and management committee, focusing on excellence as Forth moves forward to meet the needs of their communities in challenging economic circumstances.
“I have seen the excellent work they have done over the years and the difference they have made in their communities and look forward to building on this and further developing partnerships, which will play a major part in enabling our customers to have excellent services.”
She added: “I am passionate about providing good quality homes and services which contributes to promoting accessible, inclusive, and sustainable communities, which fits well with Forth’s vision to provide homes not houses, supporting tenants, and enabling them to live a rich, full life where their wellbeing is valued.”
Sharon is responsible for overall for the delivery of Forth’s business strategy and operational activities, as well as servicing the management committee.
Forth Housing Association operates in the eastern part of the Stirling Council area.
