Futures Housing Group today announced that Tim Mulvenna will be its new Chief Executive Officer, taking up the post later this year. Tim will succeed Lindsey Williams who became the first CEO of Amber Valley Housing in 2003 and has remained with the organisation through its merger with Daventry District Housing to create Futures in 2007. Lindsey announced her intention to step down in September 2023.

Tim has nearly 20 years’ experience in housing and joins us from The Barnet Group where he is Chief Executive. The Group is responsible for all aspects of homelessness and housing in the borough. It includes the ALMO (arms length management organisation) which manages Barnet Council’s housing stock, a care and a support company, a registered provider, and a sales and lettings agent. The organisation has delivered the first new build council housing in the area for nearly 50 years and set up its own registered provider of social housing which has developed and acquired over 800 new homes. Previously Tim was Group Director, Customer Services at L&Q, London's largest housing association where, amongst other things, he was responsible for rolling out the direct maintenance service as well as the stock investment programme.

Commenting on his appointment, Tim said: “I am absolutely delighted to be joining Futures. The organisation has a brilliant track record and the focus on customers is clear. The challenges for housing associations and our residents have never been greater and I look forward to working with the team to continue to improve services and deliver more much needed affordable homes.”

Chairman of Futures’ Group Board, Mike Stevenson, who has led the search for Lindsey’s successor added: “We’re immensely proud of our people, our culture and most of all the great homes and services we offer our customers. Lindsey has played a central part in making the organisation the great success it is today and so finding the right person to follow in her footsteps was really vital. So, following a thorough recruitment process, we’re really pleased to have appointed Tim as our new Chief Executive and look forward to welcoming him onboard.

“This is an ideal time for Tim to join the Futures family. We have just launched our new corporate plan setting out our ambitions for the next three years and recently retained our G1/V1 ratings from the regulator following our latest in-depth assessment. So with Tim picking up the reins we will be fantastically well equipped to deliver our vision of providing quality homes and services for better futures across the East Midlands."
