Horizon Managing Director to step down after eight years

Horizon Housing Association Ltd’s Julia Fitzpatrick has announced her intention to step down as Horizon’s Managing Director in June 2018 after eight years at the helm.

Julia said: “It has been a privilege to work with Horizon’s dedicated staff and Board, as well as with Link and our many partners who are committed to providing quality homes and services.

“Horizon has a clear sense of purpose that our work should enable people, regardless of impairment, to live full independent lives in the community they choose. I know that Horizon is well placed to build on this strength, and I will continue to be one of its many supporters as I move into my next venture.”

Frances Wood, Horizon’s Chairperson said: “Julia has been an enormous asset to Horizon and she will be missed.  She leaves a well performing, highly regarded organisation and we must now look forward to the challenge of recruiting a successor.”
