Michelle Reid appointed new Chief Executive of Merthyr Valley Homes
We wanted to inform our tenants, clients and partners that Michelle Reid, our Chief Executive Officer, has been appointed as the new Chief Executive of Merthyr Valleys Homes (MVH), Wales’ first tenant and employee mutual.
Michelle said: “I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as the next Chief Executive of Merthyr Valleys Homes following Mike Owen’s retirement. It’s a huge honour to be given the opportunity to take this fantastic mutual organisation into the next stage of its journey, working in partnership with the members, tenants, staff and partners, and supported by an outstanding senior management team.
Whilst I will be sad to leave all the wonderful tenants, clients and staff across the Cynon Taf Group, I’m looking forward to supporting the MVH Board and Democratic Body to sustain and build upon the successes already achieved, and to look to the future with confidence.”
Joy Kent, Chair of Cynon Taf Community Housing Group added, “Obviously we are really sad to lose Michelle. She has been an outstanding Chief Executive. She has worked so hard with the board and staff team to get us into the place we are now with some great new approaches and systems set up, and some really exciting and ambitious plans for the future. We wish her and MVH all the best and thank her for everything she has done for CTCHG.”
The Board will be discussing plans for the next few months as well as the recruitment of a new chief Executive shortly.
Nicola Evans, Chair of Merthyr Valleys Homes said “Michelle’s values and commitment to our mutual way of working resonates strongly with what we are all about at Merthyr Valleys Homes. I’m looking forward to working with her to continue the excellent work that our mutual has already achieved.”
Natalie Warner, Chair of the Democratic Body stated, “We look forward to working with Michelle in continuing to develop a strong future for our members and our communities.”
