An important update regarding our CEO from Emily Cox MBE, Gentoo Group Chair

Following on from the G1 Regulatory upgrade in November 2021, and after almost four years with the organisation, Nigel Wilson has stepped down as Chief Executive Officer of Gentoo Group.

Gentoo’s Executive Director of Corporate Services, Louise Bassett, will replace Nigel as Interim CEO with immediate effect. Louise is a highly-accomplished business leader, with over 20 years’ experience across senior private sector roles in consumer and healthcare organisations. She joined Gentoo Group seven years ago to assist with the organisation’s transformation project and is passionate about maximising the potential of all colleagues across the organisation.

On behalf of the Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all colleagues for your continued hard work and dedication to our tenants. We look forward to a positive and successful 2023.

Emily Cox MBE, Gentoo Group Chair
