Amber Housing appoints new CEO

Amber Housing today appoints Troy Henshall as its new CEO as the not-for-profit continues its 5-year-strategy plan for growth and expansion of its portfolio.

Troy brings over 20 years of experience working in the housing sector to Amber Housing with his most recent role as Director of Business Services and Operations at Wandle Housing where he was responsible for overseeing front line service delivery, corporate services delivery, strategic direction and its modernisation programme.

A self-confessed ‘energetic leader’ Troy commented on his new role, and the opportunities and challenges for Amber Housing, he said:

“I believe passionately in providing housing services to the people who need it in our society and have a keen interest in supporting adults with Learning Difficulties and Mental Health issues.

“With a fantastic record of delivering exceptional services to customers and vulnerable people, I am very grateful to have the opportunity to be part of the Amber Housing and Ambient Support team.  

“The immediate focus will be on expanding Amber’s portfolio of properties and services. However, this is against a backdrop of factors including rising inflation and it’s imperative we balance our plans to ensure we can continue to deliver our services in a cost-effective way.”

The organisations’ 5-year strategy includes plans to become a Registered Provider of Social Housing which will create opportunities for Amber to share their expertise and knowledge to deliver property management and services to other charities, SME’s and care providers working with vulnerable people in the heart of communities across the country.

Samantha Barber, Chair of Amber Housing said:

“We are continuing to work towards our 5-year strategy which sees us transform and position ourselves as a partner of choice, delivering property management and services to care providers working with vulnerable people in the heart of communities across the country.

“Troy’s understanding of working across different disciplines of housing and his expertise in leadership, business strategy, transformation and growth will be invaluable as we strive to achieve our goals.”
