Stuart joins the Board

Joining the board of Railway Housing Association is like a busman’s holiday for Stuart Blackett.
In his day job, Stuart helps to administer pensions for former railway workers and now he will be part of a board overseeing the work of an organisation that has many former railway workers and their families as residents.
The 41-year-old currently works as the Director of Finance & Strategy of pension administration company RPMI. This includes looking after the Railway Pension Scheme.
But, as father-of-two Stuart explains, his new role as a board member of Railway Housing Association is entirely coincidental.
“I was looking for my first board role and someone I knew mentioned the Association were looking for a new board member, so I applied as the Association sounded like a great organisation to be involved with, delivering a valued service to their residents.
“I was delighted when I discovered I had been successful and I am now looking forward to contributing to the work of the Association as it nears its 100th anniversary in 2019.
“I’m a chartered accountant and have been in finance for 20 years so I am hoping my skills will be useful in ensuring Railway Housing Association continues to be a well governed and financially viable organisation.”
Anne Rowlands, Chief Executive of Railway Housing Association, said: “We are delighted to welcome Stuart to the board; his experience will complement the skills of our other Board Trustees and ensure that our Board continues to have an excellent mix of professional expertise.”
