Clarion appoints new Housing Association Board member

Clarion has appointed Andrew Murray, former partner at legal firm Winckworth Sherwood, to join its Housing Association Board.

Andrew joins the Board with more than 25 years’ experience in advising on major housing projects, with particular expertise in regeneration, in mergers and in establishing new organisations.

Andrew was lead partner for Genesis on the Woodberry Down regeneration project in Hackney, involving more than 1,000 new homes and acted for a joint venture between a national house-builder and multi-national contractor on a major scheme delivering a new college and 360 new homes.

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

“I am delighted to welcome Andrew to the Board, his appointment will really strengthen the diverse range of expertise we have currently and his extensive experience working with our sector will be invaluable.”

Andrew commented:

“Having worked together with the legacy organisations at Clarion’s inception to form the largest provider in the country, it is a pleasure to now serve on the Board. Since 2016, the organisation has continued to use its scale and expertise to improve the lives of its residents and deliver an increasingly significant social impact.”
