Halton Housing appoints chief executive
Sam Scott will take over the leadership role from Liz Haworth, who is retiring after three years with the housing association.
Scott will join Halton Housing later this year from Muir Group, where he is executive director of operations. Scott has more than 25 years of experience working in the social housing sector.
“I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead Halton Housing and to build on the impressive foundations of previous achievements and successes,” Scott said.
“I look forward to working with the board, colleagues, customers and partners to deliver on the commitments within the new Corporate Plan 2022-2025 and to play my part in helping the organisation fulfil its purpose of improving people’s lives.”
Clive Deadman, chair of the Halton Housing board, described Scott as a “great fit” for the association.
“Sam is fully behind our purpose and what we have set out to deliver for our customers in our neighbourhoods over the coming years, understanding our important role in Halton and the Liverpool City Region,” Deadman said.
“I’d like to welcome Sam to Halton Housing and I am really looking forward to working with him and the rest of our team to deliver our plans”.
Deadman also praised Sam’s predecessor.
“Whilst the past 2 years have been extremely challenging for the housing sector, Liz’s dedication and vision have ensured that she leaves Halton Housing in the best possible position,” he said.
Halton Housing manages more than 7,000 homes across the North West, including its Hazlehurst development which will see the building of 100 senior living apartments in Runcorn.
