– UK, Glasgow –  Group Capital PLC (LON: 60RZ), Scotland’s leading housing, care and property-management organisation, today announced the appointment of current Group Director of Finance Steven Henderson as its new CEO, succeeding Martin Armstrong, who is stepping down.

About Steven Henderson

Steven Henderson joined Wheatley in 2013 from the European Investment Bank in Luxembourg where he was responsible for the investment of £250 million of EU Structural Funds, as well as lending activity for the bank in the UK social housing, regeneration, climate change and sustainability sectors. A chartered accountant, he had previously held a senior position with Ernst & Young and had worked also for PricewaterhouseCoopers.

During his time at Wheatley, the Group has raised more than £1.2 billion of private and public investment, which has funded investment in existing homes and one of the UK’s most ambitious house-building programmes. In four of the past five years, Wheatley has been the UK’s largest builder of social-rented homes.

Steven Henderson said: “It’s a privilege to be appointed Wheatley’s new Chief Executive. Martin will be a hard act to follow as his reputation as a superb public sector leader has been forged not just in Scotland, but across Europe.

“I am confident the foundations that have been laid, and with the support of Team Wheatley and board members, we will continue to live up to our mission of ‘Making Homes and Lives Better’ for the people we support across central and southern Scotland.”
