New Chair appointed to the Andium Homes Board

12th January 2021

The Andium Homes Board is delighted to announce that, following a process overseen by the Jersey Appointments Commission and with approval from the Guarantor, Mr Richard McCarthy CBE has been appointed to the position of Chair, subject to the normal 10 day
Ministerial Decision notification period.

Richard will take over from the current Chair, Sir Mark Boleat, who was appointed by the Government in October 2019 in an interim capacity to lead the process to recruit a new Chair and other independent director roles which had become available.

The Board is thankful to Sir Mark for his stewardship over the last year and for overseeing the required Non-Executive Director recruitments.

Richard brings a wealth of experience in senior leadership and non-executive roles in the Private Sector, UK Government, Housing Associations, and the Third Sector. He lives in the UK with his family and received a CBE in the 2009 New Year Honours for his services to housing and planning.

On his appointment, Richard said “I am delighted to have been appointed as Chair of the Andium Homes Board, taking over from the excellent position left by Sir Mark Boleat. Andium Homes has a strong business model, and I am impressed with what the company has already achieved since incorporation, in delivering significant improvements across its portfolio and increasing the supply of homes for the Island. I have a passion for, and commitment to, delivering affordable housing and look forward to bringing my knowledge and experience to Andium Homes.”
