OSPREY Housing have announced their new Chief Executive Officer — Stacy Angus, currently Osprey’s Director of Housing Services, will be stepping up to succeed Glenn Adcook who is retiring after nearly 11 years with the organisation, the last four as CEO.
Osprey Housing — a prominent and highly-regarded registered social landlord which owns and manages more than 1,800 properties across Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City, and Moray — carried out a robust and thorough recruitment process from a strong field of candidates, from which Ms Angus emerged as the unanimous choice.
Ms Angus first joined Osprey’s forerunner, Aberdeenshire Housing Partnership, in 2006 as a customer services assistant and has progressed through the ranks holding several key and senior roles before being appointed to lead the organisation.
Mr Adcook said that the board’s selection of Ms Angus was a tribute not only to her skills, talent, and commitment over the past 15 years, but also recognises her development as an exceptional leader.
‘I am personally thrilled to see Stacy take the helm at such an important time. I have no doubt she will maintain Osprey’s ethos while bringing her own vision to the next chapter of our journey.’
He added that Ms Angus’s successful appointment also demonstrates the value of Osprey’s investment in its staff, career development, and the vital role of good succession planning.
Osprey Housing chair Mike Scott said: ‘We are excited and pleased that Stacy is to be our new CEO.
‘She has been a great asset to Osprey over the years and over a number of key projects. She led on tenant participation and digitisation — this was recognised through national awards — and she has helped steer recent processes leading to Osprey becoming one single entity.
‘She will provide continuity in moving Osprey Housing forward to help realise its aims and aspirations and will be an inspiration in all that she does. It is also good that we have been able to promote someone from within our organisation to now lead us.’
Ms Angus said: ‘It’s an honour to be taking over from Glenn at such an exciting time for Osprey.
‘We have recently completed the transfer of engagements to bring Osprey Housing and Osprey Housing Moray together, and can now move into the future as one stronger organisation.
‘We have a great team, and I am both delighted and proud to have the opportunity to continue to work with the staff and our committed board members to lead Osprey on the journey of continual improvement and high performance.’
She added: ‘’My aim as incoming CEO is to build on our current strengths and continual improvement, further embedding and escalating digital transformation. Alongside this we are in a strong position for future growth and development, giving us a wider scope to really make a difference and improve the communities we work in.
‘Culture is key, and our core values are at the heart of all that we do. My personal values align fully with those of Osprey, and this is reflected in my leadership style and passion for delivering quality services to tenants.’
Ms Angus, 40, studied Geography at the University of Aberdeen, and shortly after joining Osprey took her Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) professional diploma in housing via De Montfort University. Already a Chartered member of the CIH Stacy is currently completing her Chartered Management Institute, leadership diploma.
She lives with her six-year-old son Innes and their pet Jack Russell terrier Jules near New Deer in rural Aberdeenshire. Outside work, she enjoys horse riding, is a very keen climber and hill walker, and volunteers for a mix of community organisations
