Fond farewells at Havebury as Director of Resources prepares for switch
Havebury Housing Partnership will bid a fond farewell this week to a key member of its
organisation who will be leaving after nearly seven years of dedicated service.
Departing Director of Resources Paul Edwards joined the affordable housing provider in September 2009 from Swan Housing where he was Director of Treasury Services.
Since Paul made the permanent switch to Suffolk, his overall responsibilities have included the overseeing of Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology and Performance, as well as Corporate Governance through his role as Company Secretary.
Paul will now be making the move back to Essex, although staying in the housing sector, where he will become Director of Resources at CHP, a housing association based in Chelmsford providing over 9,100 homes across the county. His role will be filled with immediate effect by the highly experienced and knowledgeable Marie McCleary, who will leave her current role as Head of Finance at Havebury in order to take on her new role as Director of Resources.
After praising the services of Havebury, Paul said:
“It’s a sad day as I say goodbye to a great organisation filled with a fantastic team, but I’m looking forward to starting my new role at CHP."
His successor, Marie McCleary, who is preparing for her final days as Head of Finance at Havebury before becoming the new Director of Resources said: “I am excited to be taking on Paul’s role and I look forward to building on the firm foundations Paul has established here at Havebury.”
Chief Executive at Havebury Housing Partnership, Karen Mayhew, said: “We are immensely thankful to Paul for the dedication and hard work that he has put in over the past seven ye ars to help push us to where we are today.”
Mrs Mayhew added: “We are confident that with her expertise and knowledge with the housing sector and Havebury as an organisation, Marie will be able to fill the Paul’s shoes extremely well, continuing to help Havebury meets its’ overall aims and ambitions.”
