Homes England chief executive to step down

Homes England has announced that its chief executive Nick Walkley will leave the agency next month.

Mr Walkley joined the Homes and Communities Agency in March 2017, which was relaunched as Homes England the following year.

He will step down on 28 February and the agency’s chief investment officer, Gordon More will act as interim chief executive.

Mr More will be supported by chief financial officer Lynda McMullan and an executive team drawn from the public and private sectors.

‘I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved and I’d like to thank my colleagues and our many industry partners for their dedication and support,’ said Mr Walkley.

‘My successor will find an organisation brimming with talent, purpose and heart. Homes England is well-positioned to support the country’s economic recovery and I wish my colleagues the very best.’

The chair of the Homes England Board, Peter Freeman, added: ‘On behalf of the Board and colleagues, I would like to thank Nick for his outstanding leadership in building a dynamic, commercial delivery agency.

‘The country faces some crucial choices about how we emerge from the pandemic and Homes England stands ready to support the government in stimulating economic recovery and increasing housing supply.’
