Rooftop Housing Group welcomes two new board members

Evesham based Rooftop Housing Group has appointed two new non-executive directors to the Rooftop Group board in the past six months.

Lenna Cumberbatch-Nichols is the new board representative for people, culture, and diversity and Wayne Harris is the representative for development and investment. Both also sit on specific committees of the board.

Lenna Cumberbatch-Nichols has specialised expertise in diversity and inclusion strategic change. Lenna has worked and volunteered in roles across the diversity spectrum.

These include the Windsor Fellowship charity for under-represented young people, Galop the LGBT+ anti-abuse charity and sexual health charity Terrence Higgins Trust.

Lenna is a Trustee (equality, diversity and inclusion) for the British Pharmacological Society and non-executive director (diversity, inclusion and respect) at recruitment firm Goodman Masson.

Wayne Harris is a RIBA, CIH qualified architect who spent his early professional career in private practice designing retail centres, industrial / manufacturing sites, schools, and private housing before moving into the social housing sector in the early 1990's.

Since that time, he has held several roles managing assets, repairs and maintenance, delivery of new housing and some care services.

Employers have included three councils, a newly formed stock transfer housing association and, in his current role, a traditional housing association called Pobl Group - Wales largest social housing provider.

Sally Higham, chair of the board at Rooftop Housing Group Board Chair, said: "I am delighted we have been able to add Wayne and Lenna's considerable skills to the Rooftop board.

"This is a difficult time for many people in the communities that we serve, and a strong board keeps Rooftop Housing Group focused on what we need to do.

"We are especially pleased to strengthen our focus on equality, diversity and inclusion by formally adding specialism in the areas of people and culture to the board."
