Adam is our Director of Resources/Company Secretary. A chartered management accountant since 2010, Adam has over 15 years’ experience in housing finance. He joined LYHA in August 2016 from Anchor, where he most recently headed up their Housing and Property finance team.
Adam has a keen interest in Value for Money and has represented LYHA on the Sector Scorecard practitioners’ group, helping to implement the sector’s universal and comparable performance indicators.
Since starting work at LYHA, Adam has instigated a number of important developments including: moving the financial year to allow better comparison with other organisations; consolidating rent reviews to a single date in the year to improve accuracy and the efficiency of the rent-setting process; and sourcing an extension to the Association’s borrowing of £10m to provide funding for the development programme over the next 3-4 years. These achievements resulted in a shortlisting for Finance Director of the Year at the Housing Finance Awards 2018.
Outside of work, Adam has a young family, suffers the trials and tribulations of the Bradford Bulls rugby league team, and has recently taken up rowing with Bradford Amateur Rowing Club. He is also a member of the Board of Governors at Wycliffe C of E Primary School in Shipley, part of the Bradford Diocesan Academy Trust.
