The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) has announced two new senior directors in its executive team.
Aaron Hill and Carolyn Lochhead have been appointed director of policy and membership and director of public affairs and communications respectively.
Hill will join SFHA in September from the Welsh housing federation Community Housing Cymru, where he is currently head of policy and external affairs, having worked in a variety of senior roles over the last six years. He has previously worked in policy and public affairs roles, covering Wales and Westminster for over a decade, with experience of the housing, health and education sectors.
Lochhead will join in August and is currently head of communications and public affairs for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), a position she has held since 2019. She has been with SAMH since 2005 in policy, campaigns and public affairs roles. Prior to joining SAMH, she worked for the Scottish Funding Council for Further and Higher Education as a policy officer.
Hill said: “Home is at the heart of the economic and social wellbeing of every community, and I’ve seen the positive difference housing associations make every day by providing safe, warm and affordable homes. I know they are ambitious to do much more, and I can’t wait to get started in this new role to support them to ensure everyone in Scotland has a good home in a successful community.”
