Gina Amoh, Chief Executive of Inquilab Housing Association has stepped down as Chair of BME London Landlords following a successful three-year tenure.

During Gina’s time as Chair she led and developed a collaboration that has allowed smaller housing associations to utilise their knowledge and expertise, and those of their larger partners to achieve economies of scale, ensure better risk management, and provide value for money.

This included working closely with key stakeholders and Government to provide strategic input into housing delivery in the capital; resulting in signing the Build London Partnership with L&Q and the Greater London Authority, to support its 14 member associations to further develop new homes where we need them most.

Gina also developed and drove the Leadership 2025 initiative, a nine-month leadership training programme for senior leaders in the housing sector from BME backgrounds.

In a press release issued to Inside Housing, BME London Landlords said its members and partners “would like to thank Gina for her hard work, dedication, foresight and leadership that has made an enormous contribution to harness our collective narratives, organisational experiences, assets and resources”.

Gina hands over the tenure of Chair of BME London Landlords to Ben Laryea, Chief Executive of Ekaya Housing Association. Inquilab will continue to support the BME London Landlords group.
