Introducing Heather Thomas,
our new Chair of the Board


I am very pleased to have taken over as Chair of the CCHA Board. I joined the CCHA Board in 2017 and took over as Chair from Steve Benson in September 2019.

My day job is a Chief Executive of a small specialist housing association based in North West London. Prior to my current role, I have held executive positions at other housing associations.

I am a Croydon resident and have followed the development of CCHA over the years. I was pleased to have joined the Board and I am really honoured to have been selected as Chair.

I look forward to working with residents, staff and Board members of CCHA, so that we continue to be a successful organisation. We are currently preparing our new business plan which will be focused on us being a trusted landlord, meeting the growing housing need and providing excellent services.

Best wishes

Heather Thomas
