Link CEO, Craig Sanderson takes home CIH Lifetime Achievement Award

Craig Sanderson, Chief Executive of the Link group of social enterprises, was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) during the CIH Scotland 2018 Excellence Awards ceremony on Friday night.

Ross Martin, Link Group Chair, said: “With Craig set to retire early next year, we are extremely mindful of all he has achieved for Link, the housing sector and the lives he has improved across Scotland.

“Everyone at Link is very proud of what Craig has accomplished during his career and we are all delighted the CIH has recognised his work with a Lifetime Achievement Award.”

Craig is set to retire from his role on 31 January 2019 after 43 years working with Link.

Last month it was announced Jon Turner, currently Group Director of Treasury at Wheatley, will join Link as the group’s new CEO on Monday 7 January 2019.

Craig was not Link’s only success story from the awards, with Elaine McAulay also winning the Margaret Vass Award for Excellence in Frontline Housing.
