Say hello to our three new board members

In the final part of our governance restructure, we have appointed three new members to our board.

Ian Johnson, chief executive of Tyne Housing, Charlotte McMurchie, partner and head of Real Estate Dispute Resolution Muckles LLP and Barry Pollock, ‎managing partner of full-service agency, ‎The Works have been officially appointed to the board.

They will be joined by previous board members, David Langhorne, assets and development director at Your Homes Newcastle, Alan Smith, group director of finance and resources at County Durham Housing Group and Rod Brasington, chief executive of Prosper.

Ian Johnson, chief executive of Tyne Housing, who is chair of the board, said: “I was delighted when I was asked to join the Prosper board. The procurement landscape has changed dramatically over the past few years and the direction Prosper is now moving in is very different to where it has been previously.

“The new members bring a wealth of experience with them and we all have a clear idea of where Prosper should position themselves in the sector. I’m really looking forward to helping the organisation in its next chapter.”

Over the last twelve months, we have been re-evaluating the way they’re structured, how we operate and the services we offer to ensure they’re fit for purpose for both existing and future members.

Rod Brasington, chief executive of Prosper, said: “We are very happy with the new board structure.

“The candidates we have chosen all have a good understanding of Prosper and our aims and values for the future. We are confident we have the right people to help us on our journey.”

The ever-growing Prosper team work with housing associations across the North East to provide everyday procurement solutions as well as contract management solutions that generate notable procurement savings, efficiencies and social value outcomes.

Our latest New Build framework solution is set to be unveiled in the upcoming weeks. Unlike previous frameworks, the framework will include a modular section.
