NEWARK and Sherwood Homes is celebrating this month, following its chief executive, Rebecca Rance, being named one of 24housing magazine’s ‘Top 50 Power Players’.
The prestigious list profiles the most influential professionals within the housing sector nationally, and the company’s chief executive has not only scooped the 15th slot, but is also the highest ranking representative from a council owned housing company on the list.
With over 25 years in housing, from trainee to chief executive, Rebecca has a wealth of experience which she uses to drive change and improvement both locally and at a national level. Rebecca has been at the helm since Newark and Sherwood Homes was set up in 2004, and from that time, has led the company to become a top performing organisation with 92% overall customer satisfaction in 2016.
At a national level, Rebecca is active in ensuring that local priorities and local needs are recognised. She is an executive steering group member for the National Federation of ALMOS.
Rebecca said: “I am delighted to have been recognised in this list as an industry power player. The housing sector continues to face significant challenges – with homelessness on the rise and not enough homes being built. It is important that we use our voice to ensure that our tenants and local priorities are heard, so that national policy delivers the change and development we need on the ground in local communities.”
In partnership with, and on behalf of Newark and Sherwood District Council, Rebecca is currently overseeing the delivery of Newark and Sherwood largest development programme of affordable homes in over 30 years. This will deliver 335 homes in five years, including a prestigious 60 apartment extra care scheme on Bowbridge Road which will provide care and support for elderly people in their own homes.
