Welcome to our new CEO, Kirsteen

We're delighted to announce the arrival of Kirsteen McGinn as Chief Executive Officer following the departure of Lorraine Usher in April 2023.  

Kirsteen joins us following a successful five years as Director of Property Services at Argyll Community Housing Association and brings 30 years of experience in the sector to her new role. 

Russell Brown, Convener commented: "Kirsteen is a passionate, forward thinking and knowledgeable professional who will lead our staff team, support the governing body and actively embrace Loreburn's wider aspirations.

"We're looking forward to working together to further our work to improve lives and communities across our region".

Kirsteen's extensive experience, skills and knowloedge will compliment Loreburn's strategic direction and help drive our ongoing commitment to high-quality homes and service delivery in local communities.  

Commenting on her appointment, Kirsteen said:  "It's a privelege to be appointed to lead a progressive and customer and community focussed Association.

“Loreburn is at an exciting time in its development, as we explore new ways to work with our partners to provide high quality homes and services across the region.  It is of course also a time of challenge and economic uncertainty – for tenants and the sector as a whole.  

“I’m looking forward to working with Loreburn’s dedicated and talented staff, tenants, and stakeholders to continue the commitment to create great places to live and to build on Loreburn’s well-deserved reputation.

“I want Loreburn to remain a great place to work where we keep driving great outcomes for our tenants and communities."
