The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) has announced John Hannigan, current CEO at Circle Voluntary Housing Association, as the new chair designate of its governing board, and he will take over as chair in October.

John Hannigan, FCIH FCCA CDIR, who has worked in the sector for over three decades,  succeeds Geraldine Howley, who has held the position for the past two terms and has served on the board for a total of six years.

The CIH board will recommend the appointment to the organisation’s AGM in October. Following a membership vote, Geraldine will formally step-down enabling John to take on the role.

A Fellow of CIH, Hannigan is a long-standing member of CIH’s governance structure sitting on CIH Northern Ireland’s advisory board from 2016 to 2022, becoming chair of the advisory board for Chartered Institute of Housing Ireland in 2022. In addition, he became a trustee in 2019 and a member of CIH’s Audit and Risk Committee in 2017, which he then went on to chair.

“Working closely with the board and management team at CIH, I plan to drive continued growth and excellence for our sector and particularly our members. Together, we will navigate the evolving landscape, collaborate with stakeholders on the issues that matter, and seize opportunities that will deliver value for our members,” he noted.

Gavin Smart, CIH’s Chief Executive, added: “John brings tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the role as well as extensive relevant experience. I look forward to working with John, and the rest of the governing body, to ensure CIH continues to be a successful, accountable, strategic, modern, inclusive and dynamic organisation that is both prepared to face future challenges and fit for purpose.”
