New CEO for Jigsaw

Brian Moran will take the top post at the Tameside-based housing provider, replacing the soon-to-retire Hilary Roberts.

Roberts will retire on 1 March, after 33 years with Jigsaw Homes Group and its predecessors Adactus Housing Group and County Palatine. She announced her upcoming departure in September, saying:  “It has been an incredible privilege to lead Jigsaw, working with brilliant and caring colleagues, overcoming challenges and feeling like we have made a difference to the lives of so many people.”

Currently deputy chief executive at Jigsaw, Moran has been part of the housing provider since it was created through the merging of Adactus and New Charter Homes in 2018. Prior to that, he was the director of corporate services at Adactus.

During his time at Jigsaw thus far, Moran has helped create the housing group’s corporate plan and secure a £360m sustainability bond to support its goals to build 4,000 homes by 2028.

Moran said he was “very excited” to build upon Roberts’ legacy.

“I will approach the role of chief executive as I have every other job I have ever done; with enthusiasm, honesty, integrity, and I will do my absolute best,” he said.

“I look forward to working with the board, Jigsaw’s talented leadership team, and colleagues throughout the business to continue to provide the best services we can for our current residents and to build much needed affordable housing for our future residents.”

Jigsaw board chairman Fay Selvan welcomed Moran to the chief executive role.

“Brian’s wealth of knowledge of the Group and the sector, his passion for providing affordable homes and to create the highest standards in service delivery to our customers, will make sure we can deliver on our mission of creating homes and building lives,” Selvan said.

Jigsaw manages more than 35,000 homes in the North West and East Midlands. The social housing provider has its headquarters in Ashton-under-Lyne and also operates offices in Leigh and Arnold. Current projects include 106 homes in Poulton-le-Fylde and 71 in Openshaw.
