One Manchester appoints new chief executive

And she’s coming from close to home.

Nicole Kershaw

Ranked among the most progressive providers in the country, One Manchester has a new boss lined up.

Nicole Kershaw is coming a short distance to take One Manchester further as chief executive – around 30 miles or so from Widnes where she’s been chief operating officer at Halton Housing.

Nicole will replace One Manchester’s current chief executive Dave Power, when he steps down in the new year.

Power said: “Nicole’s 15 years of experience in the social housing sector and her focus on transformational leadership, innovative service design, and creating first-class customer experience means she’s well placed to continue the great work One Manchester has been doing for its customers and in its place areas.”

Speaking of her appointment, Nicole said: “One Manchester is a fantastic organisation, and I am honoured to lead it forward with a team I respect and admire.

“This is an exciting time to build on the successes to date and reach new heights for the benefit of One Manchester’s people and places.

“I am very much looking forward to working with the board, executive team and colleagues from across the business over the coming months.”
