Caledonia fills new role of director of finance and governance
Leigh Grubb is to join Caledonia Housing Association as its new director of finance and governance.
A qualified chartered accountant and former chief operating officer, Leigh has over 20 years’ experience within the financial services industry, including a number of senior management positions with Alliance Trust in Dundee.
His background in operational management and compliance means that Leigh is well-versed in the finance and regulatory aspects of governance.
He will work alongside his fellow directors to support Caledonia’s business transformation programme and will play a vital role in supporting Caledonia as it delivers on its vision to build 1000 new homes by 2022 while improving living conditions for its tenants.
Leigh Grubb said: “Caledonia is a housing association that is energised and clear about its future direction. The team is strategic, passionate and focussed on delivering its vision and I look forward to being part of this as we continue on our journey.”
Julie Cosgrove, chief executive of Caledonia Housing Association, said: “Leigh has strong people skills and a track record of success encompassing finance, compliance and change management. That makes him ideal for this role as we work to transform our business and provide greater support for our tenants.”
Leigh joins Caledonia on August 26 and will work alongside existing director of finance and IT Ron Hunter, who is set to retire in the autumn.
