Bolton at Home
After initially working as a funeral director, Jon made the leap into housing in 1987 and gained his wealth of experience with a wide variety of roles in management and tenant participation.
Jon became a Chief Officer at Bolton Council in 2001 and has been the Chair of the Greater Manchester Consortium for refugees and asylum seekers since that time. In addition, he had a unique joint role across the Local Authority, ALMO (Arms Length Management Organisation) and Strategic Housing Partnership, managing a wide range of housing services as well as responsibility for the development of affordable housing.
He was awarded an OBE in 2007 for services to housing.
In April 2010, Jon became our Chief Executive, while we were still an ALMO, and has led our transition from ALMO to a registered housing provider and charity, which continues to deliver a wide range of housing and community based services across all neighbourhoods in Bolton.
