Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association (ISHA) has announced the appointment of two new directors with Olukunle Olujide joining from Guinness Partnership and Dawn Harrisson promoted internally.
Olukunle, currently Head of Development – Delivery for London and the South East will be Director of Development and Dawn the Director of Housing and Neighbourhoods.
Speaking today, Chief Executive Ruth Davison said: “I’m hugely excited about these appointments. We had strong fields for both roles but the passion and values of Dawn and Olukunle shone through. Both are absolutely committed to building and maintaining safe, quality homes that people are proud to call their own and being rooted in the communities we serve.
“I’m utterly confident that with both on board we will go from strength to strength.”
Olukunle said: “I am looking forward to bringing my extensive experience and skills to help drive forward ISHA’s ambitious plans for the future, including the provision of genuine and much needed quality affordable homes, coupled with an excellent customer focused service in the communities we serve. I am also keen to continue the good work of Colin Archer with existing North River Alliance (NRA) partners and establish relationships with other organizations and partners alike.”
He has previously worked for several of the G15 housing associations as well as EC Harris LLP (now Arcadis) and John Rowan & Partners.
Dawn takes up her role immediately. She joined ISHA in July 2016 as Head of Customer Homes before her promotion to Director. Before joining ISHA Dawn worked as a Head of Service at Shepherds Bush Housing Association and has over 25 years of experience working in housing in both the private and public sectors managing a range of teams.
She said: “I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as the new Director of Housing & Neighbourhoods at Islington & Shoreditch Housing Association, a place where I believe I can make a difference. “I am excited by the challenge of delivering our shared vision of a cracking landlord service and ensuring our homes are safe for everyone. I am really looking forward to working with our customers to understand what they truly expect from us as a landlord and for them to help shape the services we deliver going forward.”
