Plus Dane appoint to newly formed Director of Housing post


Andrea Howarth has been appointed to the position of Director of Housing at Plus Dane. With solid background in the housing sector, Andrea has spent 25 years working with tenants and customers to deliver excellent housing services across the North West and London.

Andrea is currently Assistant Director of Housing for Wythenshawe Community Housing Group and has also held senior positions at Willow Park Housing Trust and Hillingdon Homes.

Following a recent leadership team review Plus Dane has moved from having three, geographically split Directors of Housing to a single post covering the whole organisation.

Barbara Spicer said:

“I am delighted to be welcoming Andrea into our newly formed leadership team, the second of six senior appointments we are looking to make. Andrea’s impressive track record in housing management will be an asset to Plus Dane as we begin a new journey for the organisation.

“Having a single Director of Housing post is important to us as it will enable us to provide a consistent offer to our tenants no matter which neighbourhood they live in, something that has been very much welcomed by our Tenants Together Forum.”

Commenting on her appointment, Andrea said:

“I’m so pleased to be joining the new leadership team at Plus Dane and am really looking forward to working with the housing team to deliver great housing services for our customers.

“I am passionate about working with customers and local partners to support communities and make neighbourhoods great places to live and I know this is something Plus Dane invest a considerable amount in – so for me this is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference.”
