Earlier this year, our current Chief Executive, Dave Power, announced that he would be stepping down in January 2020, after over 10 years.

We’re delighted to announce that Nicole Kershaw is set to join our team as our new Chief Executive in the New Year.

Nicole will join One Manchester from Halton Housing, where she is currently the Chief Operating Officer.

“One Manchester is a fantastic organisation and I am honoured to lead it forward with a team I respect and admire”, says Nicole.

“This is an exciting time to build on the successes to date and reach new heights for the benefit of One Manchester’s people and places. I am very much looking forward to working with the Board, Executive Team, colleagues from across the business and our customers over the coming months.”

Dave Power said: “Nicole’s 15 years of experience in the social housing sector and her focus on transformational leadership, innovative service design and creating first class customer experience means she’s well placed to continue the great work One Manchester has been doing for its customers and in its place areas.”

We’re very excited to welcome Nicole to One Manchester, and we look forward to working with her to maintain our focus on creating thriving communities and supporting customers and colleagues to recognise their full potential.
