Local housing provider St Leger Homes have today (2nd July 2020) announced that they have appointed Dave Richmond as its new Chief Executive, following an extensive recruitment process. Dave will replace current Chief Executive Paul Tanney who retires on 30th September.
Dave Richmond has spent over 30 years working in local government, the last ten of which were in charge of Rotherham and then Hull’s housing departments, turning both into highly performing well regarded services.
During Dave's time in Hull the housing service was named Strategic Housing Authority of the Year by the Chartered Institute of Housing and it was also the first organisation in the country to be named as a Tpas Exemplar in recognition of the authority's commitment to listening and acting upon tenants’ views.
Dave Richmond said: “I am delighted to be joining such a highly performing organisation as St Leger Homes. I am looking forward to working with colleagues in Doncaster to make sure St Leger Homes not only provides great services for tenants, but also makes a significant contribution to the wider wellbeing of residents across the Borough.’’
Dave Wilkinson, Chair of the Board, said: “Dave Richmond comes with an excellent and successful track record and I look forward to working with him when he takes up his new position on 1st October. Dave is someone who will ensure tenants’ views and needs remain at the heart of what we do.”
