Richard Hill appointed interim boss of HCA

  • Comment

Richard Hill has been appointed chief executive and accounting officer of the Homes and Communities Agency until a permanent candidate is selected.

Hill will take up the role on 26 January, after former chief executive Pat Ritchie left the Agency to head up Newcastle City Council.

He is currently director of programmes and deputy chief executive at the body, having previously worked as director of investment at the Housing Corporation.

Before that, he held senior roles at NHSU and the New Opportunities Fund.

Hill said: “I am pleased to take on leadership of the HCA during a challenging yet exciting period. My priority will be to ensure that the HCA meets its year end delivery targets, while business planning for the year ahead and making a strong contribution to the Government’s 2015/16 spending review.”

Chairman of the HCA, Robert Napier, said: “Richard has a wealth of experience and a strong existing leadership role at the Agency, and as deputy chief executive he is the natural choice to lead the Agency throughout this crucial year end period.”
