Our long-serving Chief Executive, Jason MacGilp, will be stepping down in the New Year.
Angus Lamont, Chair of the Board said:
“Jason has been an excellent Chief Executive for Cairn and has made a very significant and positive impact during his time with the Association, and I and my Board Member colleagues will be very sorry to see him leave us. A great deal has been achieved for our customers and strengthening of the organisation during Jason’s tenure as our senior officer. This includes establishing the Group, with Ancho and Pentland Community Enterprises, and delivery of new homes and improved services and modernising the organisation. The Board has valued Jason’s committed service. We thank him for his leadership and wish him well for the future.”
Jason MacGilp said:
“It has been a personal pleasure and professional privilege to lead and work with so many talented staff and management colleagues over my time at Cairn and I have appreciated the guidance and support from chairs and board members over the years.
“We have achieved a great deal together and developed the organisation into a well-respected, innovative, strong and growing social business and always seeking to put customers first. We have great people here and through the team’s hard work we have worked very successfully with partners to meet housing and support needs in communities across Scotland.
“I told myself when I was first appointed to the Chief Executive role at Cairn that this was a 10-year job. Somehow, 12 years have flown by, and I have been pleased to have contributed to delivering Cairn’s vision of Great Homes, Great Services and Great People. There is an excellent team in place, and I feel it is now time for me to move on and for someone else to take up the leadership role at Cairn.
“I will be actively supporting the Board in the coming months to begin the recruitment process for my successor at Cairn Housing Group.
“There is plenty to do between now and when I leave, but I am also now looking forward to exploring other opportunities and challenges next year, and I shall be open to a range of interim projects and permanent roles where hopefully I can add value.”
