Ruth Cooke, Chair of the Board for Connexus, has today announced that Richard Woolley has been appointed as the new CEO for Connexus, which manages over 10,000 homes across Herefordshire and Shropshire.
“I am delighted to confirm that we have appointed Richard Woolley as the new Chief Executive for Connexus. Richard is the current Director of Resources for the group and has over 20 years of experience within the housing sector. Richard’s knowledge and strong leadership skills will take Connexus to the next level and we are excited by his ideas and proposals to take the organisation forward”.
“I’m delighted to have been appointed as CEO of Connexus. I have been working within housing for many years and have lots of innovative ideas about how we can take Connexus to the next level. I am so pleased to be continuing to work with colleagues across the counties we serve and also building on the great work we do. I am also looking forward to further cementing our relationships with our partners and stakeholders within the housing and wellbeing sectors”.
Duncan, Interim CEO commented:
“I wholeheartedly congratulate Richard on his appointment as CEO. His vast experience and skill set see a very bright future for Connexus.”
Richard will take on the role relatively quickly following a handover from Interim CEO Duncan Forbes, and will then continue with the development of the remaining management team through recruitment of a Director of Development and Director of Assets and Repairs, which are currently being advertised.
