CIH Appoints New Chief Executive

The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) has appointed Terrie Alafat to become CEO following the departure of Grainia Long next month.

Terrie is currently director of housing at the Department for Communities and Local Government in England and has worked in the civil service since 2003. She has worked with policies on issues including homelessness, supporting people, affordable housing and housing supply.

Terrie said: “I am delighted to be joining CIH and I look forward to working closely with members, colleagues and the board to support the housing profession to deliver decent, affordable housing across the UK and further afield.”

The change to CIH comes as current CEO Grainia Long moves on to take up her position as Chief Executive at the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Deputy Chief Executive of CIH, Gavin Smart, will act as interim Chief Executive until Terrie's arrival.
