Anchor Hanover: Kate Smith and Simon Glucina

Anchor Hanover has appointed Kate Smith and Simon Glucina to its executive board.

The appointments follow the completion of the merger between Hanover Housing Association and Anchor Trust last December, which created England’s largest provider of care and housing for older people.

Smith (pictured) has been appointed executive director – business services, with executive board-level responsibility for communications and marketing, HR and IT. She has held senior roles in a number of housing organisations, including executive director of corporate services at bpha and, more recently, as group corporate services director at Southern Housing Group.

Glucina is executive director – transformation. He joins from Ei Group, the UK’s largest pub group, where he led Ei’s transformation programme from 2015 to the start of 2019. Before that, he was a partner at the management consulting firm L.E.K. Consulting focusing on consumer services. 

Jane Ashcroft, chief executive of Anchor Hanover, said: “Simon and Kate join us at an exciting time and I’m very pleased to welcome them to the organisation. I very much look forward to working with them to achieve our ambition to transform housing and care so everyone can have a home where they love living.”
