Welcome to Leslie Channon, our new Insights Lead


HACT is delighted to announced that Leslie Channon will become our new Insights Lead in October.

“We’re excited that Leslie has agreed to join HACT,” said Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive of HACT, “where she will become our first Insights Lead, responsible for the delivery, development and promotion of our insight tools – Community Insight and Value Insight. This new role will be responsible for building on our reputation for the provision of robust, quality tools and resources.

“We believe social housing should be a force for positive change. With Leslie Channon on board, I’m confident that we are better placed to help housing associations deliver their social purpose.”

Leslie Channon said:

“I’m looking forward to joining the dynamic and innovative team at HACT. Being able to focus on the social purpose of the sector is such a brilliant opportunity and it’s something that’s long been close to my heart.”

Our insight tools enable social housing providers to put tenants and communities at the heart of their investment decisions, so they can deliver the services, initiatives or developments that tenants and communities actually need. These tools help housing associations make better use of data so they can deliver their social purpose for the benefit of tenants, communities and the organisations themselves.
