Board Profile: Nick Warden

I have worked for Accent Housing for 20 years, starting as an office junior and working my way up through repairs, dealing with plans and maintenance works and ultimately became a manager of regional planned works teams, working on customer safety, compliance and the Building a Safer Future Charter.

I joined the Board for my own personal development and growth and to understand how I can use my experience to help make a difference. I was attracted to the Horton and Chartford Boards because of the work that they do to support the clients they work with. I really enjoy learning how the organisation works to provide an excellent service to the people they support and also the people who work here.

What I bring to the Board is my personal experience of asset management, compliance and safety knowledge. My experience working for a housing association gives me an understanding of how they operate and how I can make a difference. Through my involvement, I learn from the vast, diverse experience and knowledge of other board members.

Away from the Board, my main passions are Bradford City and metal detecting.

Nick is the Vice-Chair of the Chartford Housing Limited Board and a member of the Group Asset Management & Development Committee.
