Award winning CEO joins the National Centre for Diversity team

NCFD Grand Awards 2016 DSC_6297The National Centre for Diversity is delighted to announce that former Chief Executive of the Year, Shaun Tymon has joined the National Centre for Diversity team.

Shaun Tymon was the first Chief Executive to win the highly coveted Chief Executive of the Year Award at the NCFD’s first Grand Awards in 2016. His leadership took Yorkshire Coast Homes to the very top of the National Centre for Diversity’s Top 100 Index – achieving a total of four prestigious awards in their first year of entry.

Shaun took on the role of Chief Executive at Yorkshire Coast Homes in 2011, having previously been Finance Director. During the last six years he has overseen the organisation doubling in size, bringing many services in house and increasing the range of services offered to the organisation’s communities.

One of Shaun’s main priorities as Chief Executive was to develop the company’s role as a leader in the local community and in the social housing sector generally, on equality, diversity and inclusion issues.

Shaun will be bringing all his experience with him as he joins the team as Director of Networks. His first task will be to create, build and develop a national network of Chief Executives in the Housing sector.

Shaun said “I am excited and honoured to be joining the team at the National Centre for Diversity and look forward to having the opportunity to promote issues that I am absolutely passionate about.”

CEO of the National Centre for Diversity, Solat Chaudhry commented “We are delighted to be working with Shaun Tymon. We are so pleased to be able to recruit such a high calibre individual. Shaun’s work will have a keen focus on bringing together the best Chief Executives in the UK Housing sector into a single body; which will take forward the agenda on Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE). I look forward to working with Shaun closely on this endeavour.”

The new and exciting network; which is being built specifically with CEO’s within the Housing sector in mind, will aim to:

  • Raise awareness of the importance of strong leadership in the housing sector
  • Raise awareness of the importance of FREDIE in the housing sector
  • Provide constructive challenges to current sector thinking
  • Engage with top level members of the housing sector via meetings, events and written communication

With an established success record in building co-operative working networks including their own National Patrons Network; the NCFD team are confident that with the direction from Shaun Tymon, this new network will equally be a success, not only for the Centre – but also for the Housing sector.
