Meet the Board

Our Board of Directors is made up of residents, councillors and independent members from fields of work related to our business. The Board is focused on leading Homes for Haringey to achieve its objectives efficiently and effectively.

The members of the Board have a wide range of experience and interests but they have two things in common: a real affection for Haringey and a desire to improve the borough’s council housing.

"I want the highest levels of service for residents, ensuring value for our money and pushing Homes for Haringey to keep driving up standards for all residents. High quality housing means homes in which people feel safe and warm, where access is provided for those who are less mobile and homes that are maintained to a high quality all the time. In cases where those standards fall short, I want to see repairs being carried out quickly and to a high standard."
