The chair of 23,000-home PA Housing has stepped down from the board after three years at the organisation.
Hattie Llewelyn-Davies, who was made chair of the association in 2018, has now left the role and board member Anne Turner has been appointed as interim chair. The organisation said it has begun the search for a new permanent chair.
PA Housing has more than 20,000 homes situated across London, Surrey and the Midlands. Its headquarters are in London.
It was formed in 2017 after Asra Housing Association and Leicester Housing Association merged with Paragon Community Housing to form PA Housing.
The exit of Ms Llewelyn comes just a week after the association confirmed that it has abandoned plans for a merger with Accent Group, which would have seen the creation of a 43,000-home association.
Ms Llewelyn-Davies is a highly experienced social housing professional and has wide experience as a chair and non-executive board member at number of large associations. She is currently chair of Eastlight Community Homes and has previously been chair at Viridian Housing before it merged to become Optivo.
A statement from PA Housing on the stock exchange said: “Hattie wishes PA every success in the future, praising the strength of its staff and residents.
“Everyone at PA extends their thanks to Hattie for her hard work and dedication over the past three years and sends their very warmest wishes for the future.”
