Social landlord Coastline Housing has appointed Steve Harrison to its Board.
The new Non-Executive Director joins from a background of public service roles.
Steve has extensive policing experience at a senior level in Devon & Cornwall and Northern Ireland. He also has specific expertise in relation to performance, organisational and risk management, community and partnership engagement, and customer focus.
He said, “I am delighted to be joining the Coastline Board and to be able to contribute to resolving the many local housing challenges. Everyone associated with Coastline’s aims has already achieved so much in this respect. I look forward to being part of the team that delivers ambitious plans to provide many more affordable homes to local people and communities.”
