Blog: Richard retiring in 2018

Soha Chief Executive Richard Peacock, July 2017

This blog is rather different from previous updates I’ve written for Soha’s website because it’s about me! I am writing this to inform you all that I have decided to retire next summer.

This has been a difficult decision. However, Soha is in a good place with sound finances, great  services and growth and a true track record of involving tenants. I believe this is the right point to provide a platform for new leadership.

I have been fortunate to do a job I love and I am immensely proud of Soha and the great staff and residents who have made my job so rewarding. I am, of course, especially proud of leading the change in our structure making us one of the few mutually-owned HAs where tenants have real control.

I believe that Soha’s local community base has underpinned our success and would like to thank you all for your support over the years.

 The Board will begin recruitment for the new CEO in January and an update will be posted to Soha’s website in due course.
