Macclesfield housing association, Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, has announced the appointment of Jane McCall as Chair of the Board.
She succeeds outgoing Chair, John Hudson, from May 2020, after previously holding a number of strategic and governance roles in the housing, health and legal sectors.
Prior to joining to Macclesfield housing association, Jane McCall was Executive Director of Neighbourhoods for 10 years at Trafford Housing Trust, and has been a Non-Executive Director for the Office for Legal Complains and Deputy Chair at Wythenshawe Hospital. Jane also currently is Chair of Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care Foundation Trust, and holds Non-Executive roles with the Information Commissioner’s Office and House of Commons Commission.
Speaking on her appointment at Peaks & Plains Housing Trust, Jane McCall said:
Our social purpose as an organisation and sector is more evident now than ever before. Despite the economic, regulatory and compliance challenges that face us all in the current climate, I am confident the Trust has the right team in place to tackle these.
“Peaks & Plains is a strong organisation with an excellent reputation that I have followed throughout my own career. I look forward to working with the new executive team and being part of the organisation’s next chapter.”
Mark Howden, interim Chief Executive at the Macclesfield housing association added:
Jane’s passion and enthusiasm for the Trust is already evident. Her skillset and track record reinforce the robust action plan that we are working closely with the Regulator for Social Housing to put in place, and we very much look forward to welcoming her as our new Chair.
“We would like to thank John for his years of dedicated service to the Trust. He leaves an organisation that is financially robust and has a clear strategic direction on how we plan to enhance and restore the governance standard the Trust is known for. Throughout his tenure, John’s commitment to the Trust’s purpose has been a constant.”
