Meet Lee Sugden, Northwards' new Interim Director of Transition.

After 15 years of dedicated service to the residents of north Manchester, Robin Lawler retired at the end of December from his role of Chief Executive. Everyone at Northwards would like to say a huge thank you to Robin for the fantastic contribution he has made to the local community during his career with us.

To lead the organisation and help develop the future housing service in north Manchester, Lee Sugden has been appointed as Interim Director of Transition. Lee was previously CEO of Salix Homes in Salford and decided to move on from that role last year.

With 25 years of experience working in social housing in both senior financial and CEO roles, Lee brings a wealth of experience to Northwards to lead us into 2021.

Lee said, “I am delighted to be joining Northwards at what I recognise is a time of change for the organisation. My priority will be to work with the brilliant team here to make sure excellent services continue to be delivered and, in addition, ensuring a smooth transition to a new service model that meets the expectations of everyone involved.

“Northwards provides invaluable services and support to the community of north Manchester and it is vital that this is maintained together with the development of important investment plans to deliver homes that people deserve.”
