With Jacque having just completed her first 12 months as CEO and bringing with her change for a new positive culture...I feel that this is the best time to join YHG
We'd like to welcome our new Chief Financial Officer, Kal Kay.
Kal joins Your Housing Group following a career that started in the private sector, but for the last 20 years, has been in public and not-for-profit roles. Kal has held senior finance roles in local government, health, charities, housing, and more recently in education.
Kal shared, “YHG going through a period of change with Jacque having just completed her first 12 months as CEO. I feel Jacque is bringing with her a new positive culture coupled with drive and ambition for the organisation, and that’s why I feel that this is the best time to join YHG.”
Kal brings with her some incredible professional achievements, having self-studied and qualified as a full member and fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and also securing her MBA.
Speaking about her immediate priorities, Kal says, “In any leadership role, the first priority has to be getting to know people and building strong relationships with colleagues, residents, and external stakeholders."
“As CFO I of course need to really understand the finances, the business plan, key risks, opportunities, and what needs to be done to ensure ongoing financial viability.”
We’re thrilled to have Kal on board as part of #TeamYHG, and as we welcome her to the team, it means we’re sadly saying goodbye to Jeremy Vickers, who has been our Interim Chief Financial Officer for the last 12 months.
Jeremy has been an integral part of our Executive Team and YHG as a whole, and we want to say thank you for everything he has brought to the role and the support he has provided Jacque in her first year as CEO.
