Our New Governance Officer

Good Corporate Governance is essential within any organisation and especially for organisations such as Kingdom which receives significant amounts of public funding and as a registered social landlord and Scottish charity. The importance of this has led to the appointed of Kingdom’s first governance officer, Calum Kippen.

Calum started with Kingdom in August having previously worked in London for the Embassy of the United States of America, where he was working in the general services department providing housing and property management support. A key role for Calum will be to further enhance and advise on the governance arrangements within the Kingdom Housing Group and during his first few months Calum will be involved with the Board members annual skills audit and assessments.

Calum has relocated to Fife with his family to take up the post and said: “I am very excited to be back in Fife working for a well-established organisation such as Kingdom. I am looking forward to working with the Board of Management and staff and supporting them to deliver high quality services to our customers.”

Outside work Calum enjoys spending time with friends and family as well as playing golf and football.

Bill Banks, chief executive of Kingdom, said: “Both of these appointments are new posts within Kingdom and this is reflective of the priority and importance we give to the key areas of work related to customer involvement and Governance. Both Max and Calum have a wealth of experience to bring to the posts and I wish them well in their new positions.”
