Let HQN's team of experts give you the keys to business transformation success

HQN is delighted to announce that a former CFO of Asda and Amazon UK has joined its group of business transformation experts delivering consultancy support to housing organisations.

Rob McWilliam joins a new team of associates led by Samantha Young, former Director of Business Transformation at New Charter Group, which is dedicated to helping the social housing sector deliver successful digital change programmes. 

Their services are available to any social housing provider that is just getting started on its business transformation journey or needs guidance to make sure it is heading in the right direction.

The new consultancy offer, entitled Keys to success, will be officially launched at a series of free workshops in April and May but the team is currently looking for partner organisations to test out the approach.

Having served as UK Finance Director at ASDA/Wal-Mart and Amazon UK, he was most recently Vice President for Amazon’s Consumer Goods portfolio. Rob is now pursuing a cross-sector portfolio career including non-executive and digital advisory roles and is keen to pass on his private sector business expertise to the housing sector.
