Orbit has announced the appointment of Mark Hoyland as interim Chief Executive.

Mark brings extensive experience leading organisations across different sectors to deliver a high-performance culture, operational excellence and outstanding customer service.

His most recent role was as Managing Director at construction company, Balfour Beatty PLC, transforming the Engineering Services business. Prior to this he held positions at Peverel Property Services, managing services to 200,000 homes, and a five-year period as Chief Executive at City West Homes.

Tessa Blackstone, Orbit Group Chair, said: "Mark has a strong track record and a wealth of experience in the housing and construction sectors. We are very pleased to have him leading the organisation during this brief transition period. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Tennant for his commitment as Chief Executive for the past 14 years."

Orbit will shortly begin the recruitment process for a permanent Chief Executive to take the organisation forward in its 50th year.
