Bob Kerslake to leave HCA

Bob Kerslake will leave the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to take up the role of permanent secretary at the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG)

The chief executive’s departure has been welcomed by HCA chairman Robert Napier, who congratulated him on the appointment.

He said: ‘Bob has literally lived and breathed the HCA since he was appointed just over two years ago, and along with the hard work and commitment of all our staff he has played a major part in our success to date.

‘Looking forward we have a continuing and evolving role, as well as a business to run as usual, and over the coming months we will continue to deliver against our current programmes while we shape our new way for doing business.

‘I am pleased that Government recognises that the key role that the HCA has to play in helping to shape local places, and that our staff have the necessary skills and expertise to adapt to our changing world.’

The HCA Board will recruit a new interim chief executive from its existing group of directors.

Kerslake, who oversaw the huge Kickstarrt housing programme, will take up his new position on 1 November
