Havebury appoint new Strategic Board Chair Designate

Posted on 01 February 2022

We are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Strategic Board Chair Designate, Howard Cresswell. Howard has been appointed to a current Board Vacancy ahead of taking up the Chair role following our Annual General Meeting in September, when Ian Mashiter will step down having reached his full term of office. 

Howard is currently Chair of People, Governance and Remuneration Committee as well as Board member at Optivo. He has 32 years’ experience working in social housing as an executive, interim chief executive, consultant, and non-executive director. He had a long career at Circle 33/Circle Anglia becoming Deputy Group Chief Executive and has a professional background in Governance, People Management and Development. Howard lives in Suffolk.

“I’m delighted to be appointed”, said Howard. Ian has done an excellent job in leading the board and I look forward to taking over the reins when he steps down in September. Havebury has a great deal to be proud of and as we enter our 20th anniversary year, I hope that we can continue that journey in delivering great homes and services for current and future tenants whilst further strengthening the tenant voice.”
