Farewell to Phil

Farewell to Phil
7th March 2018 James Calnan

Greenfields are sorry to announce that Phil Adams, Chief Executive of Greenfields Community Housing, will be retiring on 31 March 2018.

Phil said “I have had an absolutely fantastic ten years as Greenfields’ first Chief Executive and, although this has been a difficult decision, I am looking forward to having the time to be able to pursue my other interests and spend more time with my family.

“I’d like to place on record my thanks to the Board, our involved residents and to all the staff at Greenfields for all their help, support and commitment, without which we wouldn’t have made such a big difference to the quality of our residents’ lives.

“This is quite simply the best job I’ve ever had and I have had the pleasure of working with some of the finest, most talented people I could ever wish to have met. I am so grateful for the opportunity and the experience given to me by the company and I wish Greenfields every success for the future.”

Dale Butcher, Chairman of Greenfields’ Board, said: “We’d like to thank Phil for his ten years’ service. Under Phil’s leadership, Greenfields has achieved levels and quality of service and performance that have exceeded expectations.

“It is with our thanks that we wish Phil well for the future and every success in whatever Phil decides to do in his retirement.”

The Board will start the process of finding a new Chief Executive which may take some time.  Meanwhile in order to support the Executive and Senior Leadership Teams and the rest of Greenfields’ staff, the Board will look to recruit an Interim Chief Executive and will start to interview for this role the week commencing 12 March 2018.
