Alan Powell takes up the reins as Director of Social Housing

Northgate Information Solutions, a leading provider of information solutions to social housing providers, today announced the appointment of Alan Powell as its new Director of Social Housing.

Alan joins the Local Government and Social Housing team, part of the Public Services Division of Northgate, which delivers a comprehensive set of solutions that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of social housing providers and local government departments.

Prior to joining Northgate, Alan was the Group Director of Information Systems at Hanover Housing Group, a large and complex Registered Social Landlord, providing a wide range of housing and related services on a national basis.

“I am delighted to be joining the company at what is an exiting time for everyone in the social housing arena,” said Alan. “Northgate has a terrific track record of providing innovative software and services to the social housing sector. We now want to build upon this to spearhead the implementation of further improvements which will bring real benefits to social housing providers and their residents.

“The social housing business delivers essential services to millions of people throughout the UK. It’s a vibrant and demanding sector consisting of dedicated people who want to make a real difference to people’s lives in the most efficient way possible. Northgate can contribute to this in a significant way from enhancing customer services at the front line to streamlining and automating processes throughout organisations. My aim will be to build upon the partnership that exists between the social housing community
and Northgate to one where we can add most value and deliver more. It’s an exciting challenge which I relish.”

“We are delighted to have Alan as a member of the team,” said David Meaden, Northgate’s Managing Director of Public Services. “Social housing is a vital public service which technology can support. If we are to build healthy and successful neighbourhoods we need to ensure that everybody has access to decent housing as an integral part of community justice. Northgate is committed to delivering continuous improvement in the sector, and Alan’s appointment will ensure that this is the case.”
