How we are run

Our skilled and experienced Board ensures Sovereign is able to achieve its social purpose, while growing sustainably, for the long-term.

To provide insight and challenge, the Board is supported by a committee structure with Board members and independent specialists, covering Audit and Risk, Remuneration, Treasury and Development.

As part of its commitment to best practice, the Board has adopted the National Housing Federation’s Code of Governance and Excellence in Standards of Conduct Code.

The Executive Board, led by Chief Executive Mark Washer, work to deliver the strategy, oversee and improve performance while protecting and growing the business.

To inform our decisions we have a formal process to allow residents to scrutinise and challenge our work. Find out more about our approach to resident engagement.
