HCA chief executive Andy Rose departing for infrastructure finance role
Andy Rose is to leave his post as chief executive of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), to take up a new role in global infrastructure finance.
In April, he will assume the role of chief executive at GIIA, a global advocacy association that represents equity investors in global infrastructure.
Rose joined the HCA in April 2013, at a time when the housing development industry was still recovering from the global downturn.
He established a new investment function within the HCA, to help unlock stalled sites and increase investment in housing and infrastructure through greater use of equity and loans.
Rose also built up the HCA’s role as a central body within Government for the disposal of surplus public land.
HCA chairman Kevin Parry and housing minister Brandon Lewis both thanked Rose for his successful leadership of the HCA and wished him well in his new role. Parry said Rose “leaves an organisation that continues to provide new homes for thousands of people and is set to deliver the Government’s recently-announced priorities for housing and public land”.
A recruitment process to appoint a new HCA chief executive will commence shortly.
