New appointments at Anchor Hanover

Anchor Hanover has strengthened its executive board with two new appointments; Kate Smith and Simon Glucina have joined the organisation in new roles.

The appointments follow the successful completion of the merger between Hanover Housing Association and Anchor Trust at the end of 2018.

Kate Smith is executive director - business services, with executive board-level responsibility for communications and marketing, HR and IT. Smith has held senior roles in a number of housing organisations, including executive director of corporate services at bpha and more recently group corporate services director at Southern Housing Group.

Simon Glucina is executive director – transformation. He joins Anchor Hanover from Ei Group Plc (formerly Enterprise Inns), the UK’s largest pubs group, where he led the transformation programme from 2015 to the start of 2019 in which Ei Group successfully diversified from being solely a leased and tenanted operator to establishing one of the country's largest managed pubs estates. Prior to Ei Group, he was a partner at the management consulting firm LEK Consulting focusing on consumer services. 

Anchor Hanover chief executive Jane Ashcroft CBE says: “Simon and Kate join us at an exciting time and I am very pleased to welcome them to the organisation. I very much look forward to working with them to achieve our ambition to transform housing and care so everyone can have a home where they love living.”
