Outgoing Freebridge Chief Executive nominated for national award

06/07/20

Freebridge Community Housing are delighted to announce that their outgoing Chief Executive, Tony Hall, has been nominated for a Housing Heroes Award in the Lifetime achievement in housing category.

Tony Hall, who will be leaving Freebridge at the end of the month, after almost 14 years at the head of the West Norfolk housing and community organisation, has spent over 30 years working at a senior level in social housing and local governments all over the country. .

Tony was previously Director of Community with the Borough Council and oversaw the transfer of almost 7,000 homes to the newly established Freebridge in April 2006. Since then the organisation has made an impact through activities such as the decent homes improvement programme, the regeneration of Hillington Square, taking over the ownership and management of Providence Street Community Centre and the Discovery Centre, and developing many new homes.

The Housing Heroes Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 10 September as part of Housing 2020 – Europe’s largest housing event, which this year is going entirely virtual.

Tony Hall said: “When I announced my retirement at the beginning of the year I didn’t think I’d be finishing my time in housing in such unusual circumstances. That said I feel very lucky to have worked in this hugely rewarding sector in a job that I’ve enjoyed and hearing the news of my nomination has been a very pleasant surprise during my final weeks here at Freebridge Community Housing.”
