Radian today announced Richard Hastilow has been appointed as its new Chair. A successful naval captain and businessman, Richard takes over the vibrant and financially robust organisation with a turnover exceeding £100m and which now provides approaching 18,000 homes as well as support for some 400 people with disabilities.
He replaces Mike Caton, who was made Group Chair in December 2009 to oversee a governance review which has now been realised, in the form of a group combined board and resident Area Panels. Mike will stand down as Chair of Radian on 31st March 2011. Until then, he will work closely with Richard to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities.
As a result of a successful recruitment exercise that attracted much interest, Richard joins Radian after nine years as Chief Executive of The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Richard's 32 year naval career culminated in the command of the aircraft carrier HMS Invincible, supporting operations in Bosnia.
Richard has strong links across Radian's geography. He lives near Petersfield and was Managing Director of Hampshire Training and Enterprise Council and Business Link Group for four years. As well as the built environment, he cares passionately about Radian's work in meeting the housing and care needs of the communities it works with across the South.
Lindsay Todd, Radian's Chief Executive said, "We would like to thank Mike for his outstanding contribution to our business over so many years. We welcome Richard to the Radian team at an exciting stage in our development as we respond to the challenges of the economic landscape whilst maintaining our focus on creating sector leading housing, care and support."
