Wayne Morris named as Chair Designate at Radian Group

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Wayne Morris as our Chair Designate.

Nationally recognised in the housing sector, Wayne has spent 30 years working at Chief Executive level within major housing providers across the south of England. Wayne has held several notable non-executive directorships and joined our new Board in 2019, having previously held the role of Vice-Chair of the Yarlington Board and Senior Independent Director.

Wayne also currently chairs Radian Group’s Development and Assets Oversight Committee (DAOC) and plays a lead role in helping to frame the debate about delivery of our multi-tenure development programme and investment plans for existing assets.

Wayne will assume the Chair in September and succeeds our current Chair, Lindy Morgan, who shortly completes her tenure with Radian Group.
Commenting on his appointment, Wayne said: “I passionately support the work of housing providers and I’m excited to help shape the future of Radian Group and the lives of our customers and communities.

“I believe housing providers play a critical role in building diverse communities in which people’s need for an affordable home sits alongside good access to employment, opportunities for leisure, education, physical and mental health care. I’m looking forward to championing our organisation’s values and ensuring we continue to build thriving communities and valued partnerships”

Lindy Morgan said: “We are delighted to welcome Wayne as our Chair Designate. His wealth of sector knowledge and experience means he is perfectly placed to help guide the delivery of our strategy, plans and ambitions. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time as Interim Chair and I leave the Board in very capable hands, knowing that Wayne will bring the same energy and commitment to the position.”
