Kingdom Housing Association chair re-elected

Linda Leslie

LINDA Leslie has been re-elected chair of Kingdom Housing Association.

First elected as chair in 2021, Linda has been a board member at the association since 2015 and also serves on the policy committee as well as being a director with Kingdom’s subsidiary, Kingdom Support & Care.

Having worked in the housing sector for over 30 years, her career has included front line service delivery, regulation, policy development and legislation and implementing new measures to improve housing standards and sustainability at a national level.

Linda said, “Kingdom is an innovative organisation with ambitious plans but the unique economic situation we find ourselves in certainly presents challenges for our tenants and customers and also for Kingdom as a whole. However, I am confident that with the dedication and commitment of the board, management team and staff, we will be able to deliver on our strategic objectives while supporting our local communities.”

Former chair Freya Lees was re-elected as joint vice chair alongside Laurie Naumann, who was recently recognised at the CIH Scotland Housing Awards for his Outstanding Contribution to Housing.
