One Manchester appoints new executive director of growth and assets

The Manchester-based housing association One Manchester has appointed Kevin Williams as its new executive director of growth and assets.

Williams will join the Manchester-based housing provider later this year from The Guinness Partnership where he is currently director of asset and growth strategy.

Williams, who has lived in Manchester all his life, will be tasked with ensuring that customers and communities remain at the core of the provider’s growth strategy.

Speaking about his appointment, Williams said: “I am delighted to be joining One Manchester as executive director of growth and assets. It is a fantastic organisation, with a proud track record and a very exciting future.

“I am really looking forward to helping build upon the successes to date, building and maintaining quality homes which benefit One Manchester’s people and places.”

Nic Kershaw, One Manchester’s chief executive, added: “Kevin brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and local connections to One Manchester, and we’re very excited to have him on board.

“Having someone who understands our communities was so important to this appointment, and I’m pleased that we’re welcoming Kevin to our team.”

One Manchester is a housing and community services provider which owns and manages over 12,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester.

Earlier this year Manchester City Council agreed to transfer One Manchester council-owned land to deliver 139 new low-carbon homes in Newton Heath.

The new 139 homes will be split between social rent and affordable rent and will be built to Passivhaus standards using smart design and build methods.
