Chair to retire from Wheatley Housing Group Limited



Retirement of a Director


Wheatley Housing Group Limited today announces that Mr. Alastair MacNish, OBE will be retiring as Group Chair in Autumn 2021.  Mr. MacNish has spent the last six years as Group Chair, following three years as a Board member of Scotland's largest housing, care and property management group. 


Commenting on his plans, Mr. MacNish said: " There are so many things of which I am proud," he said, "none more so than the commitment and dedication of staff and board members, who have helped Wheatley raise the bar for service excellence in the public sector in the UK and beyond.  Today, we stand for so many things: from an award-winning ThinkYes culture recognised nationally and internationally to raising well over a billion pounds of private and public investment and being named - for the fourth consecutive year - the largest builder of social-rented homes in the UK."

Wheatley Group Chief Executive Martin Armstrong said: "Alastair's leadership has been nothing short of inspirational. He has made a massive contribution to Wheatley's efforts to build and maintain sustainable, thriving communities and one that will leave an enduring legacy.  Those leadership skills have been tested as never before during the pandemic and his sound guidance and wise counsel have been invaluable and very much appreciated."

Appointment of new Chair


A sub-committee of Wheatley board directors - under Vice-Chair Ms. Sheila Gunn - has begun the rigorous process of identifying and selecting Mr MacNish's successor, with an announcement on that appointment to be released to the market in due course.
