KEIGHLEY social housing landlord Incommunities has appointed a new assistant chief executive for asset management.

Angela Perry joins the group next month from north-west-based Torus, where she has been managing director of operations since 2015.

She has worked in the housing sector for over 25 years, and at an executive level for more than a decade.

Her appointment comes as Incommunities delivers its strategic plan for growth over the next ten years and develops its multi-million pound new homes programme.

“I am really excited to be joining Incommunities at this important stage in the group’s development,” said Angela.

“I’m looking forward to working with the leadership team, colleagues and boards to make a positive difference.”

She succeeds Jez Lester, who has taken early retirement.
