BME London Chair to step down

Gina Amoh, Chief Executive of Inquilab HA, is to step down from her role as Chair of BME London.

The group is a collaboration of 14 BME Led London Registered Social Landlords expresses its gratitude for the leadership Gina has given the group during her tenure as Chair. 

Gina Amoh said: "Collaboration has allowed smaller HAs to utilise their knowledge and expertise and those of their larger partners to achieve economies of scale, ensure better risk management, and provide value for money.

"I am pleased that the work of BME London Landlords has been a flagship example of promoting closer working relations that benefits our tenants, our communities, and our staff as well as shining the spotlight on diversity issues."

As Chair, Gina has seen BME London Landlords collaborative group establish itself and grow into a model partnership of significance. 

The group has been a key part of the Leadership 2025 campaign to get a more diverse leadership in housing, as well as joining with the GLA and L&Q to form the Build London Partnership, which gets larger and smaller housing associations to work together to build new homes.

Gina as Chair of BME London Landlords also represented the group on the Mayor of London’s ‘Homes for Londoners Board’ that has strategic oversight of overall housing delivery across London.

BME London Landlord members and its partner collaborators would like to thank Gina for her hard work, dedication, foresight, and leadership that has made an enormous contribution to harness our collective narratives, organisational experiences, assets and resources in establishing BME London Landlords, in a time of unprecedented change, positioning the group to continue making a significant impact on the lives of BME housing sector residents, BME staff and BME communities in London.
