Claire Kober, the former Labour leader of Haringey LBC, has got a new job.
On the day the results of Haringey’s local elections will be delivered, it has been announced that Ms Kober is to be the new director of housing at Pinnacle Group.
Ms Kober announced at the end of January that she was standing down as Haringey’s leader amid in-fighting within the party, particularly over the Haringey development vehicle partnership with developer Lendlease. The local Labour party has since announced it would ditch the proposal if it wins the election. The result is due later this afternoon.
On her appointment Ms Kober said: “High quality housing is the centrepiece of successful thriving communities. That is why I am delighted to be joining Pinnacle Group as director of housing, ensuring that the company continues to play a leading role in the provision of high quality housing management services.
“Pinnacle Group has a long track record of working with a range of partners to deliver innovative housing services solutions. I’m looking forward to helping the company grow and develop its offer by creating sustainable communities where people want to live”.
Group chief executive Perry Lloyd said: “Housing and community are at the core of Pinnacle Group and Claire’s leadership skills and understanding of the sector are exactly what we need to develop our housing management services division.
“Housing is a complicated business with a broad range of stakeholders; our aim is always to get the best people to drive Pinnacle Group forward in the best possible way and we know we have this in Claire.”
