Director to leave Cloch

Cloch prepares for next chapter


Paul McVeyCloch is to embark on the process of recruiting a new Chief Executive Officer.  Our Director, Paul McVey has tendered his resignation following an offer of employment as the new CEO of Southside HA, and will leave Cloch mid-September. 


Paul joined Cloch in 2013 at a major time of transition and unrest for the Association. However, under his leadership Cloch has been transformed and has rightly earned a positive reputation as an innovative and customer focused organisation with a strong emphasis on positivity and success.


Kelly Ferns, Cloch Chairperson commented, " I have been on the Board for most of Paul's tenure and he has been central to many of our successes. Under Paul's leadership, Cloch regained independence, restructured the staff team to become more customer focused,  reported excellent performance results, restarted new build development and achieved many awards for various areas of work.  He is respected by Board, Staff and our customers and he will be a huge loss to the Association, although we fully understand his rationale for leaving in terms of personal development.  With our recent appointment of a new Head of Housing, this gives us a further opportunity to attract a new leadership style and fresh perspective on the challenges facing us in the years ahead”. 


Paul added, “I take great pride in what we have all achieved at Cloch in recent years, and I have genuinely loved working here.  My successor will be very fortunate to work with such a good bunch of people and for so many deserving communities.  I don’t leave until September and I will be working closely with the Board and Staff team to ensure that the transition is a smooth one.”
