Nicholas Arthur has joined National Housing Group (NHG) as its new director of partnerships. He has over 20 years experience in the housing sector from managing and leading housing regeneration to community investment, safety and anti-social behaviour. As well having extensive knowledge of housing policy and law, management and asset strategy he also understands and seeks solutions to homelessness. He has successfully managed and led various projects, delivering strategies and operational processes for housing associations, homeless organisations and local authorities.
The director of partnerships role is a new role created by NHG and will see Nicholas provide strategic support to the team and create, develop and maintain key strategic partnerships with associations and charities. He will liaise and collaborate effectively with internal and external partners and stakeholders in all operating areas ensure business is coordinated, properties are fit for purpose and that ultimately the best possible service is provided.
Nicholas said: “I am delighted to be joining NHG and help deliver that much needed bed space to those who are vulnerable. The experience I’ve gained over my career will help towards maximising the positive and social impact NHG can have on the community. I have strong leadership internally and externally and I am able to embed and share the social agenda. I have worked with a range of challenging and diverse communities and I have open and transparent dialogue that builds trust and develops resolutions of mutual benefits.”
Stephen Wasserman, founder and CEO of NHG said: “We’re excited to have Nicholas on board. His depth of knowledge of the industry and how much experience he’s gained over the years makes him the ideal member to join the team and create, maintain and deliver strong partnerships. Working with a diverse range of people means Nicholas approaches situations with empathy and understanding enabling honest relationships. Our aim at NHG is to deliver high quality, durable and sustainable housing to as many as we can and this remains the core of our business. With Nicholas and the partnerships he can create will help us reach this goal.”
