21/02/2024 @ 09:41


Barcud Housing Association, a leading organisation dedicated to addressing housing challenges in rural mid and west Wales, is delighted to announce the appointment of Jason Jones as the new Chief Executive Officer for the Barcud Group.

Jason is a seasoned property and regeneration specialist with over 25 years of experience in the private and public sectors. He is a qualified Chartered Surveyor and began his career in estate management and property consultancy in the private sector before moving to local government in 2003.

In his previous roles at Ceredigion County Council and Carmarthenshire County Council, Jason gained vast experience in estate management, property project management, regeneration, digital, and policy.

He has a track record of successful strategic leadership involving large and diverse teams and the management of significant financial budgets. Jason’s regeneration experience includes supporting economic growth in rural communities and promoting the Welsh language. This experience is well suited to Barcud’s social, tenant focused objective.

“I am honoured and excited to join Barcud Housing Association as its new CEO,” said Jason.

“I look forward to working with the team to build on the organisation's successes and continue to deliver high-quality services that prioritise the needs of our service users. I share Barcud's values and visions and am committed to working in a moral direction that aligns with our organisation's values and a tenant first approach.

“Together, I am confident that we can positively impact the communities we serve and create a brighter future for all.”

Barcud Housing Association is confident that Jason's extensive professional knowledge and senior working experiences will provide strategic advice influencing significant decisions and make him an excellent addition to our leadership team.

Alison Thorne, Chair of the Board at Barcud, said: “Housing in rural Wales is a challenging and emotive subject, and the Board has undertaken a rigorous recruitment and selection process to identify the right individual to lead the Barcud Group forward.

“After carefully considering numerous highly qualified candidates, Jason Jones emerged as the standout choice due to his exceptional leadership skills, strategic vision, and deep understanding of the unique housing challenges faced by communities in mid and west Wales.”

The entire Board and Leadership team extends its warmest welcome to Jason, and we look forward to working closely with him to navigate the complex landscape of rural Housing.

Barcud Housing Association said it remains steadfast in its commitment to providing affordable and sustainable housing solutions.

Jason will commence the new role in late spring 2024.
