Orbit Group is pleased to announce the appointment of Suzanne Forster as its new Group Finance Director.
Suzanne brings more than 20 years experience working within the affordable housing and property sector, as well as in consultancy and private practice. Suzanne has held senior roles with large housing associations and most recently was the Finance Director at Viridian Housing Group.
With bond experience, Suzanne joins Orbit Group at a time when it has recently secured its first £250m bond and further funding from HSBC to support its ambitious 2020 Vision targets.
Chief Executive of Orbit Group, Paul Tennant, said: “We are delighted to welcome Suzanne to the organisation and I am pleased to have someone of her calibre joining us as we respond to a challenging and changing environment.”
There will be planned succession between Suzanne and Anne Turner, who is currently Group Finance Director and Chief Operating Officer, until April 2016 when Anne is leaving to focus on non-executive and voluntary opportunities.
