Plus Dane appoints new Director of Finance


Plus Dane Housing has appointed Helen Nicholson as its new Director of Finance.

Helen has a wealth of experience in financial management, auditing and consultancy, and comes to Plus Dane from Contour Homes, part of Symphony Housing Group.

Her career began as a graduate trainee at PricewaterhouseCoopers, specialising in government and public sector clients, and advancing to senior management over 14 years with the multinational professional services network.

As part of Plus Dane’s senior leadership team, Helen will play an important role in the delivery of the organisation’s five-year Corporate Plan which focuses on four key priorities – financial resilience, growth and investment, products and services, and people; the latter providing a range of products and services for tenants and customers, and creating an environment of engagement, accountability and empowerment.

Helen will lead on the implementation of Plus Dane’s new finance strategy to ensure the organisation is stronger financially to be able to withstand external shocks, government changes and be in charge of its future.

Helen said: “Plus Dane is undergoing a real transformation and moving forward at pace, and I look forward to the challenge of joining the leadership team at such an exciting time for the organisation.”

Chief executive of Plus Dane, Barbara Spicer, said: “Helen brings a wealth of financial knowledge and commercial experience to Plus Dane from different sectors. This makes her a welcome addition to our leadership team as the organisation moves forward.”
