Malcolm Groves, chair of Southern Housing Group, says: "Andrew has provided great leadership and direction to our Board, ensuring that it is effective in collectively planning and implementing the Group's strategy.
"I am committed to taking this forward, and playing my part in being a custodian of Southern Housing Group's legacy. This is a legacy which has provided housing for those in need for more than a 100 years, and continues to adapt to meet the housing needs of people in the 21st century."
