It is with great fondness and gratitude that we say goodbye (for a second time) to Sam Clarke. Sam re-joined the Board in 2018, and as Chair has guided us through a period of transformation and the difficulties that the pandemic caused our industry. Although we knew Sam’s intention was to only return to the Board for this short time, his wisdom and guidance will be greatly missed. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam and to wish him a very happy retirement – though we know he’ll be kept very busy with all his other projects, including his passion for environmental change.

We are delighted to announce that Mark Hannam, who recently joined the Board, has been appointed Chair. Mark has a wealth of finance experience and has sat on the Boards of a wide range of impactful organisations. It was through one of these, Global Witness (a tenant of The Green House), that Mark became aware of Ethical Property. Mark takes over from Sam with immediate effect, and both the Board and SMT look forward to working with Mark to continue to make Ethical Property one of the UK’s leading social enterprises.
