GHA boss & vice chair quits

THE under-fire boss of Glasgow Housing Association Ltd (GHA) has quit, in a move opponents of the troubled organisation say represents "a clean slate" for the social housing provider.

Taroub Zahran, the £180,000-plus chief executive of GHA, will leave the organisation in September - a decision commentators of Scotland's housing sector believe had been inevitable for some time.

Long-serving vice chairman Fred Shedden, a former corporate lawyer perceived by many as the power behind the throne, is also to stand down. Full story in Glasgow's Evening Times.

GLC believes the departure of Ms Zahran and Mr Shedden is a move in the right direction for the soulless, uber corporate 'community controlled housing association'. For too long the GHA has failed to deliver for Glasgow's most vulnerable tenants and homeowner customers.
