John Hannigan CEO or Circle VHA, Eileen Patterson incoming chair of Circle VHA and Chris Ellison

A new chapter for the Circle Board

After many years of dedicated service, Chris Ellison, our long-standing Chair of the Circle Voluntary Housing Association Board, has concluded their tenure. Chris has been a guiding force in our organisation, championing our we hear values, our purpose and our vision and assisting in guiding Circle to deliver much needed homes to individuals and families in need and delivering on our tenant first objectives.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Chris for his exceptional leadership, unwavering commitment, and invaluable contributions. Chris’s legacy will continue to inspire us as we move forward. But thankfully, Chris will remain involved in our CVHA Board, as an independent member of the Tenants First Link committee.

Whilst we say our heartfelt goodbye, we are also excited to extend a very warm welcome to Eileen Patterson as our new Chair of the Circle VHA Board. Eileen brings a wealth of knowledge and experience alongside a deep commitment to our vision. We are confident that her leadership will propel Circle VHA to new heights.

“I am humbled to have been entrusted with this important role in a very challenging but exciting time for the delivery and management of much needed homes in Ireland. Great work has been achieved in Circle by great people and I am committed to continuing on this important journey with the support of our wonderful staff and professional Board. I’m very excited to work in partnership with our valued stakeholders to deliver on Circle’s ambitions and positively contribute to the delivery of housing for all”.

Eileen Patterson, the newly appointed Chair of the Circle VHA Board.

Please join us in thanking Chris Ellison for their remarkable service and in welcoming Eileen Patterson to her new role.
