NEW CEO APPOINTED FOR OSPREY HOUSING GROUP

Aspen would like to congratulate Glenn Adcook in his appointment for the Chief Executive role for Osprey Housing Group. After an interviewing process with tough competition, it was decided that Mr Adcook would be the most appropriate candidate to take on the exciting challenge.

Originally hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne, Glenn relocated to the Aberdeen area 22 years ago and within this time has had various senior roles in a local authority, a new town development corporation and a private sector consultancy.

Glenn will begin his post on September 1st following the retirement of Colin Hawkins.

Mr Adcook takes on the role at an exciting time for the Osprey Housing Group where they are continuously expanding upon their 2,000 properties across Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City and Moray.

Osprey chairman Bill Chapman said: “We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of interest shown in the role from throughout the UK and had an exceptionally strong shortlist of candidates at the final interview stage, but Glenn’s wide experience, not just of the Group, but of housing issues in the north east and extensive sector experience across Scotland made him the stand out candidate.

“On behalf of the Board I’d like to congratulate him on this appointment and we look forward to working closely with him going forward to serve the needs of our tenants and other stakeholders.”

New CEO Glenn Adcook said: “I’m both delighted and deeply honoured to have been given this opportunity. I’m looking forward to working closely with the Osprey Group Governing Bodies, our partners and our very talented staff team in tackling the major housing challenges that lie ahead. There is much to do and I will be agreeing with the Board key priorities for implementing commitments in our recently launched corporate plan. These will include a focus on continuous service improvement, increased tenant engagement and building new homes across Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City and Moray.”

The entire team at Aspen would again like to congratulate Mr Adcook in his new role and wish him , and Osprey Housing Group, the best of luck for the future.
