Manor Estates Housing Association has appointed Graeme Russell as its new chief executive following the retirement of Lynn McDonald.

Graeme is well-known in the housing world, particularly in Edinburgh, where he spent over 30 years working for Gorgie-Dalry, Canmore and Dunedin Canmore Housing Associations.

More recently, he has worked with SFHA and Bield Housing Association.

Welcoming Graeme to the Association, Willie Hardie, chair, said: “Lynn was always going to be a hard act to follow, but we are delighted with the outcome of what was an extremely rigorous recruitment process. Appointing Graeme, with his wealth of experience and knowledge, is a great boost for the Association – we very much look forward to working with him in the coming years.”

Graeme himself is looking forward to the new challenges ahead and added: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Manor Estates and continuing the positive work of my predecessor. The need for good quality, well managed housing within Edinburgh has never been more pressing and alongside my new colleagues I hope to assist those in need.”
