Clarion appoints two new Housing Association Board members

Clarion has appointed Sasha Morgan, current Director at the Social Mobility Commission, and finance and governance specialist Sharon Critchlow, to its Housing Association Board.

Sasha joins the Board having held a number of key roles in government departments, including the Department for Education and the Cabinet Office. More recently, at the Social Mobility Commission, she has overseen a suite of influential studies that have filled evidence gaps on social mobility and raised the profile of the social mobility agenda in the media and amongst parliamentarians.

Sharon brings with her 20 years of board level experience and is currently a Global Council Member and member of the Remuneration Committee at ACCA. During her career, processes developed by Sharon have been recognised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as best practice and she was listed globally in the Top 50 Women in Accounting 2020 and 2021 for global influence in the profession.

Commenting on the appointments, David Orr, Chair of Clarion’s Housing Association Board, said:

“I am delighted to welcome Sasha and Sharon to the Board, their appointments will really strengthen the diverse range of expertise we have currently and their extensive experience will be invaluable.”  

Sasha commented:

“I am so pleased to be joining the Board at such an important time for social housing. The sector faces many pressures but I’m looking forward to playing a part in Clarion’s resolute commitment to delivering for its residents.” 

Sharon commented:

“It’s a pleasure to be able to lend my knowledge and experience to help shape the services Clarion provides its residents. As the largest social landlord in the country, it is uniquely placed to make a positive difference to thousands of households across the country.”
