Stockport Homes CEO, Helen McHale, and Chair of the Board, Jenny Osbourne, have been named on 24housing’s ‘Power Players’ list of the most influential people in the UK housing sector.
24housing’s ‘Power Players’ list recognises people in the housing industry who use their positions to influence the sector and wider society for the better.
Helen McHale has been named in 21st place within the publicly nominated list of the fifty most influential people in UK housing. The magazine praised her inspirational leadership, her voice within housing and ultimately her optimism and enthusiasm.
Jenny Osbourne was ranked the 13th most influential person in housing, in part for her role as Chief Executive of the Tenant Participatory Advisory Service (TPAS), which ensures tenants have a strong voice within the sector and innovates how they are engaged.
Cllr Sheila Bailey, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport said:
Congratulations to Helen McHale and Board Chair, Jenny Osbourne, for being recognised as exceptional drivers towards the excellence in public sector housing we all want to see. A job being very well done.”
Stockport Homes’ Assistant Chief Executive, Sandra Coleing said:
We are extremely proud of the commitment to the sector shown by Helen and Jenny, and to have two such inspirational influences within the group has really developed our culture, and our belief that that entrepreneurialism and a commercial focus are key to tackling the economic challenges the sector faces, whilst delivering excellent services to our customers.”
The announcement of its CEO and Chair as some of the UK housing sector’s most influential people comes after a successful year for the organisation.
