LHP is delighted to welcome Anthony Read
Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) is delighted to welcome Anthony Read as our new Chair of the Board of Management.
Anthony will officially begin in the role from 17 September, and he brings a wealth of experience from a banking and finance career that has spanned three decades.
Murray Macdonald, Chief Executive of LHP is excited to have Anthony on board.
“Anthony has strong skills in leading organisations, experience in housing, and a professional background in banking, all of which make him an ideal next Chair for us,” he said.
“He is very keen to get to know us as a company, and is eager to meet colleagues and get out visiting tenants and residents.”
Anthony’s comprehensive skill set includes considerable experience of customer relationships and leadership roles, where he built high-performing teams across various disciplines on a regional and national basis, and coached and mentored senior leaders on business issues and change management.
“I have a genuine passion for customer service, with extensive experience in property finance, risk assurance and debt management,” said Anthony.
“My own consultancy business provides non-executive and advisory support to a number of small and medium-sized enterprises across a diverse range of sectors.”
Anthony is also a co-opted member of the Audit Committee of Peaks and Plains Housing Trust, and is a family man, keen golfer and a World War II historian.
The appointment of our new Chair continues LHP’s commitment to our six strategic priorities, particularly in the area of ensuring strong governance and finance. Anthony will also be influential in helping LHP achieve its vision and values which, along with our strategic priorities, are outlined in our 2019-2023 Corporate Plan.
