David Lunts, London Director of the Homes & Communities Agency, is to join the Greater London Authority as director of housing and regeneration.
He has been seconded to lead on the arrangements for the transition of the HCA and London Development Agency into the GLA, scheduled for next April.
Pat Ritchie, Chief Executive of the HCA, said: ‘While we’re sorry to lose David, this is a very positive move as his appointment to this pivotal role will help to build on the strengths of the HCA London Board. David will be instrumental in paving the way for a smooth transition of the HCA London team and its activities to the GLA and I wish him every success.”
Jackie Jacob, currently head of strategy, programme and performance at the HCA, will take on Mr Lunts’ responsibilities.
