Homes and Communities Agency chief to depart
Homes and Communities Agency chief executive Andy Rose is departing for a new role in global infrastructure finance in April.
Rose joined the HCA in April 2013, developing a new investment function to help unlock stalled sites and increase investment in housing and infrastructure through greater use of equity and loans. He also built up the HCA’s role as a central body within government for the disposal of surplus public land.
Brandon Lewis, housing minister, praised Rose for leading a “transformation of the HCA”.
He said: “The HCA has led our work to deliver over 270,000 new affordable homes over the last parliament, and to release public sector land for over 100,000 new homes. I’d personally like to thank Andy for his leadership over the last three years and wish him every success in his new role.”
Rose will become chief executive of The Global Infrastructure Investor Association, a global advocacy association that represents equity investors in global infrastructure.
Kevin Parry, chairman of the HCA, said: “I would like to offer immense thanks to Andy for his highly successful stewardship of the HCA.
“Andy can be incredibly proud of the HCA’s performance during the past few years. He leaves an organisation that continues to provide new homes for thousands of people and is set to deliver the government’s recently-announced priorities for housing and public land. On behalf of everyone at the HCA, I would like to wish Andy well in his new role.”
The HCA will shortly launch a recruitment process to appoint Rose’s successor.
