New Property Director appointed

The Diocese is delighted to be welcoming Stephen Hoad to the new senior role of Property Director, from the beginning of March.  

Stephen will lead all of the property-related functions of the Diocesan Board of Finance, working with our excellent surveyors and Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) to support the front line of ministry and mission across the Diocese.  

Importantly, he will be seeking to increase the value and income from Diocesan-owned land and property and, where appropriate, working with parishes in relation to their property.

Stephen comes to the Diocese from private practice where, as a partner, he has overseen growth of quality, service and income.  

Prior to that, he was part of the successful property team at the Diocese of London, working on building new churches in new places.  Stephen is delighted to be joining the Diocesan team as this will bring together his own active Christian faith and his professional expertise and experience.
