Coastal’s Chair, Alun Williams, stood down at last night’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), in line with recommended governance guidelines on maximum tenure.

Alun has served on Coastal’s Board for 9 years and we would like to take this opportunity, once again, to express our thanks for the wisdom, expertise and commitment he has contributed to Coastal in his time as both non-executive director and Chair.

Reflecting on his tenure, Alun said:

Alun Williams, Chair of Coastal Housing“After nine years on the Board which saw me hold the roles of Vice Chair and Chairman of Coastal Housing Group, I would like to express how much I have enjoyed working with the dedicated and passionate team at Coastal. Their commitment to delivering high-quality properties for both rent and sale at a lower cost than the private sector has made a real difference to the lives of those who need them most in our communities.

“As I step down from my role, I am confident that I am leaving the organisation in safe and capable hands. Patrick Hoare, the current Vice Chair and Chair of the Finance & Development Committee, will take over as the new Chairman. I wish Patrick all the very best on his appointment, and I have no doubt that he will continue to lead the organisation forward, building on the great work that has been done to date. I am proud to have played a part in the growth and success of Coastal Housing Group over the past nine years, and I will continue to follow its progress with keen interest in the future.”

Our former Vice Chair, Patrick Hoare, was duly elected as Chair at the AGM. Dawn Mitchell was elected to the position of Vice Chair.

Coastal would also like to thank Stephen Spill, who stood down at the AGM after serving a 3 year term as Non-Executive Director. Stephen joined the board in 2020 and we are particularly grateful for the insight, advice and experience he contributed in what were difficult and unprecedented times.

Following the AGM, you can now find Coastal’s 2022/23 Annual Review, Financial Statements and Environmental, Social and Governance report in the Document Library.
