The Board of Shepherds Bush Housing Group has appointed Matt Campion as next Chief Executive.
Matt will be taking on the role immediately upon Paul Doe’s retirement after 20 years with SBHG.
Russell Caller, Chair of the Board, said: "Matt is an excellent appointment for the Group. He comes with enormous experience and a love of the housing sector. He will bring energy and enthusiasm to the role and, if it were at all possible to fill Paul’s shoes, we believe he is the right person to do it.
"Matt was the outstanding candidate in a very tough and experienced field. This showed to the Board the interest this position generated and all candidates commented on the values and ethos of the Group as a reason for applying. We all look forward to closely working with Matt on developing the future for the Group."
Matt said in response: "I am delighted to have been offered the post of Chief Executive at Shepherds Bush Housing Group.
"It’s a real honour and privilege to be trusted with such an important role. It is arguable that the housing crisis in London 2017 is worse than ever. Londoners struggle against both the availability and the affordability of suitable homes. I am looking forward to working with colleagues, residents and stakeholders to play our part in alleviating the housing crisis."
