In July we were saddened to hear of the untimely death of our Chair, Mark Sebba. Mark joined Hyde as Chair in 2014 and in that time was a passionate advocate for Hyde and social housing in general.
Elaine Bailey, Group Chief Executive said: “Over the past three and a half years Mark has played a key role in helping to transform Hyde into a modern housing association, which is set in good stead to become a sector leading association.
“The Board are keen to build on this legacy, and I am pleased to announce that Alan Collett has been appointed Chair of the Hyde Group. Alan has been a member of the board and Chair of our investment committee since 2012 and is ideally placed to oversee the final stage of delivering our strategy to 2020, and support the Executive in developing our longer term vision for Hyde in 2030.”
Alan has worked extensively in private sector housing development, investment and valuation, being senior and managing partner of Allsop LLP until his retirement. He is currently a member of NHBC Council, a director of M&G’s Residential Property Fund and an Honorary Fellow of the College of Estate Management. He is also Chairman of Hearthstone Investments plc. Alan is a Chartered Surveyor and was President of the RICS for 2012/13. Past non-executive roles have included being a Trustee of the College of Estate Management, a Board Member at the Empty Homes Agency and Chairman of the British Property Federation Residential Committee.
