Grŵp Cynefin has announced the appointment of four new board members: Geraint George, Jane Lewis, Mike Corfield and Tony Jones.

The new appointees will join the 10-strong management board of the housing association. The board directs the affairs of the association, which manages 4,800 properties across north and mid Wales.

Dafydd Lewis, chairman of Grŵp Cynefin, said:

‘I’m delighted that Geraint, Mike, Tony and Jane have joined the board. These new appointments further strengthen Grŵp Cynefin’s leadership experience and will help take the company forward.’

Geraint George, who spent more than 25 years at Gwynedd Council after working in the housing and voluntary sectors, has also held a position on the board of Canllaw.

‘I was keen to give something back and from my perspective, Grŵp Cynefin does lots of very important work in communities across North Wales’

Jane Lewis joins following more than 20 years working in finance in the private sector:

‘I really liked the sound of Grŵp Cynefin. The way it involves the whole community with their approach. I felt I have skills to offer to help improve that as well as getting something from it myself as well.’

Mike Corfield has worked in the social housing sector for more than 30 years, and has a background in governance.

Tony Jones also has experience of the sector, having been involved in social housing for 15 years.

‘I feel it’s time for me to give back some of the knowledge I’ve gathered over the years into a Welsh organisation. I hope to be able to offer some insight into strategic operations, an area I enjoy.’

Speaking after the announcement of Grŵp Cynefin’s four new board members, Shan Lloyd Williams, Grŵp Cynefin chief executive officer, said:

‘I’m pleased to welcome our new board members. Their wealth of collective experience and diverse backgrounds will strengthen our board’s already wide range of skills and abilities.’
