We are pleased to announce the appointment of Sandra Coleing as our new Director of Corporate Services.

Sandra joins us from Stockport Homes Group, where she has been the Assistant Chief Executive. She will take up her new role in October and will lead our corporate services where she will focus on people and culture, oversee the governance agenda, and be the executive lead for areas including policy and strategy and risk and assurance.

Sandra is a well-known figure in social housing and across the Greater Manchester region where she has been highly active on a range of Greater Manchester Housing Provider (GMHP) groups, leading the GMHP Delivery Group and holding the position of Vice Chair of Manchester Athena Ltd.

I’m delighted to be joining RBH at what is both a challenging and exciting time and I’m looking forward to leading our corporate services teams to help embed the cultural change that will see us continue to deliver our recovery plan. Our focus will be to rebuild the organisation, so that we are truly focused on our tenants, the quality of our homes, and the value that we bring to the wider community. RBH is anchored in its communities, so I’m proud to be joining an organisation that aims to do the very best for the people of Rochdale who live in our homes today and those who will in the future.

I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Sandra to RBH. She will be a brilliant addition to our Executive Team and will play a key role in continuing to deliver our recovery plan which is already setting the organisation on a path towards a positive future. Sandra’s professional background spans over 25 years in the housing sector, much of which has been at senior leadership level. She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from leading a range of corporate and enabling services. That experience and drive will help us immensely as we continue to meet the challenges ahead.
