Kelly Ferns, Chairperson of Cloch Housing Association advised “the Board of Cloch is delighted to welcome Alana to the post of Chief Executive.  The recruitment process was comprehensive and our thanks to our recruitment consultants McGregor Bond for their contribution.  Alana has excellent experience in the sector both in the field of Finance, and Leadership.   The Board is really looking forward to working again with Alana as she takes Cloch into their next chapter of growth and development.   We know she will fit in well with the team and take Cloch from strength to strength”.


In response Alana commented I feel privileged and excited to be returning to Cloch, as the new CEO.  In light of the social and economic challenges facing communities, Cloch needs to be responsive and sympathetic to the needs of our customers and I believe I will bring strength and experience which will help deliver positive outcomes.   Paul has taken the organisation from strength to strength and developed and nurtured an outstanding, forward-thinking organisation.  The culture at Cloch is supported by a dedicated staff team and I am looking forward to leading and working with them in the next stage of our journey.”
