Queens Cross Housing has welcomed two new directors to the association.

Phil Daws and Heather Anderson have joined as director of property, placemaking and regeneration and director of neighbourhood services respectively.

A rigorous recruitment process was led by chief executive, Shona Stephen. She said: “It was very encouraging to see how many excellent and high-quality individuals wanted to work for Queens Cross.

“Having two new directors join the senior team brings renewed focus to Queens Cross Group’s commitment to providing excellent housing and vibrant neighbourhoods.”

Previously with East Renfrewshire Council for 24 years, Phil Daws was the head of housing, property and climate change. He managed teams responsible for all aspects of social housing, factoring, and net zero. 

Phil said: “I’m very excited to have joined Queens Cross. I know the area well as I lived there for a few years.

“The association has a great reputation and I’m looking forward to working with residents to ensure the area continues to be a fantastic place to live.”

Heather Anderson has joined from Irvine Housing Association, now Riverside Scotland, and has a long career in social housing.

“I’m delighted to have joined Queens Cross Housing Association. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed meeting staff and getting out and about to see all our housing stock and investment projects in action,” Heather said.

“I’ve always been interested in the wider strategic role of housing, particularly how good affordable housing can improve tenants’ health, wellbeing and quality of life.

“I am very excited to be part of such a community-focused organisation and look forward to getting involved in all the great work that is going on across our neighbourhoods.”
