The Regulator of Social Housing has confirmed that Fiona MacGregor plans to stand down as Chief Executive due to family circumstances.

Fiona has served as CEO since the inception of the RSH in October 2018 and prior to that as Executive Director of Regulation within the Homes and Communities Agency on an interim and then permanent basis since July 2015.

The chair of the RSH, Bernadette Conroy, will now work with colleagues in the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to appoint a successor.

Fiona will continue as Chief Executive until the new year supported by Jonathan Walters, Deputy Chief Executive, who has assumed some additional responsibilities.
