Riverside appoints Andrea Thorn as the new Managing Director of Impact Housing

Andrea Thorn who joined Impact Housing Association at the end of 2018 as Assistant Director has been successfully appointed as Managing Director of Impact Housing (part of the Riverside Group) from the 1st June 2020 and will take the key lead on completing the full integration of Impact Housing into the Group.

Andrea replaces Bryonie Shaw, former Managing Director, who has successfully secured a new position at Habinteg as Operations Director and we all wish her well for the future.

Andrea joined Impact with over 30 years’ experience in the social housing sector and 12 years’ experience in senior leadership roles at Home Group developing high quality services across Cumbria to the customers and communities and latterly as Assistant Director in the south.

Mark Cullinan, Impact Committee Chair, said “Andrea’s experience of both social housing and integrating businesses and services as well as her achievements within Impact over the last 18 months places us in a strong position to ensure continuity of service delivery to our customers whilst developing full integration plans with Riverside over the next 12 -18 months.  I would also like to congratulate Bryonie on her new appointment and thank her for her dedication to Impact over the last 5 years”.
