Scottish Borders Housing Association welcomes new chair Robin Hill
Robin Hill has succeeded Simon Mountford as the new chair of the board at the Scottish Borders Housing Association.
A solicitor with over 30 years’ experience in the legal profession, Mr Hill is stepping into the role as the association adapts to the constraints around lockdown.
He said: “I am delighted to be taking on the role of chair. In following my predecessor Simon Mountford, I will be building on solid foundations. Not least his commitment to affordably warm homes, which over the period of his tenure took us to 95 per cent compliance with the Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH).
“Over the next decade, we will expand on this, as we play our part in the creation of a carbon neutral South of Scotland. At this time it is vital that we use our financial capacity to invest in new and existing homes and play our part in supporting the local economy.”
Mr Hill is a director at VMH Solicitors Ltd. Originally from Kelso, he joined the board in February 2016 and has served as the convenor of the audit & compliance sub committee since November 2017.
