Link Group Ltd chief executive Craig Sanderson has announced his intention to retire after 43 years of service at the Association.
Mr Sanderson will step down later this year from the position which he has held for 30 years.
Formed in September 1962, Link is now one of the largest social landlords in Scotland consisting of a group of eight social enterprise companies serving more than 15,000 tenants and other customers.
The Association has eight members of staff when Craig Sanderson started but now employs over 550 staff based in offices across Scotland.
Ross Martin, Link Group chair, said: “Link will embark upon a formal Options Appraisal, which will inform its operational and strategic plans. It will also help to determine how best to build on Craig’s considerable achievements in shaping, growing and leading this dynamic organisation.”
