Elizabeth Froude

Housing and care provider Anchor has appointed Elizabeth Froude and Fred Angole as non-executive directors.

Froude has worked in the housing sector for almost 20 years and worked for large and complex organisations in several parts of England. She is group chief executive at Platform, Housing Group and previously worked for several large FTSE organisations in the UK, US and across continental Europe in roles particularly focused on change and performance improvement, often in M&A environments.

Froude is the chair of the National Housing Federation’s sustainability strategy group and also on the board of the Future Homes Hub, which conducts research to support policy development on future housing standards in the new build environment.

Froude said: “I am delighted to be joining Anchor’s board and helping to maintain a constant focus on providing quality and value for money services that meet residents’ changing needs.”

Angole is an accountant with more than 30 years’ experience in the social housing sector, as a regulator, finance executive and non-executive director. He is finance director and deputy chief executive of YMCA St Paul’s Group, a supported housing provider that specialises in providing accommodation and wellbeing services to vulnerable young Londoners. He is also a non-executive board member and chair of the audit and risk committee at Notting Hill Genesis Housing Association and holds a similar position at Newlon Housing Trust. 

Angole is a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. He was previously director of corporate services at Homes for Haringey and a trustee of Black Cultural Archives.

Angole said: “I very much look forward to helping further strengthen Anchor’s reputation as an inclusive organisation that is committed to supporting residents’ wellbeing.”

Anchor’s chairman Christopher Kemball commented: “Both Elizabeth and Fred bring a great deal of experience to the board. I look forward to working with them and the other members of the board and Anchor’s executive team to ensure Anchor continues to innovate to meet the needs of the older people of today and tomorrow.”
