Notting Hill Genesis is sorry to announce that our deputy chief executive, Elizabeth Froude, has decided to leave the organisation.
“Although Notting Hill Genesis was formally created only in April 2018, I personally have been working on the amalgamation for more than 18 months,” Elizabeth explains. “It has been both enjoyable and hard work, but the mobilisation of change is now happening in individual teams across the business. Therefore, this feels like the right time to move on and look for my own personal next step as a chief executive, something I have been working towards for some time.”
“I am full of admiration for Elizabeth,” says chief executive Kate Davies. “She has been an excellent deputy to me and, before that to Neil Hadden at Genesis, acting up to cover his role on more than one occasion. Alongside Neil and others, Elizabeth was one of the prime movers in making our merger happen, and provided quality leadership on all aspects of finance, operations, culture and governance as we came into existence.
“Elizabeth makes things happen and has a very clear view of what she wants. This rapier focus has resulted in a decision that now is a good time for her to investigate her next challenge.
“I know that colleagues from both former organisations will miss her enthusiasm, intelligence, drive and kindness. Elizabeth is well known and respected in our sector and beyond, and it will not be long before we hear of her further achievements.”
