Brent Housing Partnership has appointed a new chairwoman for their management board.

Joanne Drew has been named as the successor to Kathy Ellison who held the position since BHP was established in 2002.

She stepped down last month.

BHP, an Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO), manages the council’s 13,600 homes and 300 of their own properties.

Ms Drew, who will hold the position for three years, has a wealth of experience in the housing sector including in-depth knowledge of ALMOs.

She had previously acted as the lead advisor to Brent Council in establishing BHP.
