      Esther Wilson

      Esther led on the development of new housing investment that has created over 500 new homes in East Lothian. Working in partnership with a neighbouring authority she has actively promoted diversity in housing and secured significant investment for Gypsy/Travellers and led the development of the first extra care housing facility in South Lakeland. I am passionate about the contribution which housing can make to the health and social care agenda.. She has been instrumental in re-focusing the South East Scotland Housing Forum and ensured that it made a constructive contribution to the regional Strategic Development Plan and is also lead officer for the East Lothian Sustainable Economy Community Planning Partnership.

      Helen Forsyth

      Helen is Chief Executive of Berwickshire Housing Association. She has been operating at a Strategic level both as a Board member and a senior manager in a range of organisations in the housing and voluntary sector since 1995. She was a member of the Big Lottery Scotland Committee for seven years which is the longest term of office possible and contributed to their strategic plan for Scotland, policy and grant funding stream development and supporting their work to tackle poverty and exclusion across Scotland.

      ‘This is a very exciting time for Housing in Scotland. We need to consider new ways of working and collaborating if we are to take up the opportunity to build new homes and meet housing need. We also have serious threats to our ability to deliver as the changes in Universal Credit and the Local Housing Allowance are implemented. I want to be part of finding solutions to these very different challenges and being on the Board will allow me to be at the heart of that debate.’

      Richard Armitage

      Richard Armitage is Chief Executive of Pentland Housing Association. Prior to coming to Scotland he was Financial Performance Manager at Broadacres Housing Association in North Yorkshire. Richard has served on a number of boards, most recently Highlife Highland.

      ‘I am looking forward to working with CIH Scotland to help support their important work and objectives, not least the 5 point plan. I feel I can provide valuable input into their strategic direction and on a practical level promote the CIH throughout Scotland , especially in the Highlands where I am based.’

      Mike Campbell

      Originally from Pilton in North Edinburgh, Mike graduated with a degree in Geography from the University of Edinburgh before starting a career in local government housing management, all of which was spent working from neighbourhood offices. Leaving to be an at home Dad, Mike studied for an open learning MBA from Napier University before going on to start his own letting agency, Belvoir Falkirk, growing it into one of Central Scotland’s biggest and most respected agencies. In late 2014 along with partners Mike acquired the business of Ryden Lettings, a long established Edinburgh agent, rebranding it as Belvoir Edinburgh where he works as the Managing Director.

      Committed to the promotion of best practice in the PRS, Mike is a Director of The Scottish Association of Landlords and sits on the policy Group of SAL’s Council of Letting Agents. Mike retains an interest in Social Housing and serves on the board of Clyde Valley Property Services, the commercial subsidiary of Clyde Valley HA and is entirely persuaded that we ought to focus on the quality of the housing management provided not the tenure of the landlord.

      ‘Having been a member of CIH for 30 years it a great privilege and indeed no little surprise to find myself joining the CIH Scotland Board. I believe that as professionals we can become too focussed on tenure and don’t pay enough attention to housing as a system and I hope to make a useful contribution to breaking down barriers.’

      Jim Hayton

      Jim began his housing career in the early 1980’s in the community based housing association movement. He spent most of his career in local government with South Lanarkshire Council, where from 2005 he was Director of Housing and Technical Resources. During this period he managed a department of some 1400 staff, and was accountable for capital and revenue budgets in excess of £300 million, including large housing, schools and other public building programmes.

      Jim retired from local government in 2010 and became Policy Manager with ALACHO, the representative body for Scotland’s chief housing officers. He retired from that post in 2015.He is interested in all aspects of housing policy, particularly strategic housing policy planning, promoting new housing supply, housing’s contribution to regeneration, and the integration of health and social care.

      ‘I am very pleased to be taking up a position on the CIH Scotland Board. It has never been more important that the many virtues of good quality affordable housing are emphasised, and I look forward to working with colleagues in communicating that message.’
