New Board members welcomed

Three new faces have come on board to help us provide more affordable homes for local people at a time when they are needed more than ever.

Emma Harper, Deanna von Anrep and Ann Lattimore have joined the Board as non-executive directors, bringing with them a broad range of expertise and experience.

Emma has several years of experience in social housing.  She is currently Head of Transactional Services for Britvic plc, having previously held a number of key financial roles, including Head of Corporate Shared Services and Group Finance Manager (Shared Services), for Sanctuary Housing.

Emma says: “I saw that WRHA were looking for someone with financial acumen as well as social housing expertise, and I am very much looking forward to my new role.

Deanna von Anrep is a member of the Senior Housing Leadership team at PA Housing.  She developed a strong background in business management, voids and allocations and homelessness, before taking a more strategic role.

I am really passionate about customers and my culture is all about customer service,” says Deanna.  “I am looking forward to having the opportunity to really drive that in my new role.

Ann Lattimore joins the Board following a varied career, which has included roles with the Women’s Royal Naval Service, the Police Service and the Police Authority.  She has also been Community Connector for a large housing association and Neighbourhood Coach/Housing Manager for Stow on the Wold.

Ann says: “I feel passionately that real communities work when they are made up of people of all ages and all walks of life.  The housing provided by WRHA is essential to that purpose.”

Company Secretary, Richard Mugglestone, adds: “A wealth of skills have been brought to the Board through these three new appointments, putting us in an even stronger position to help Warwickshire’s rural communities to remain sustainable.
