Nick Atkin Group Chief Executive, Halton Housing
Nick has driven the transformational change of Halton Housing to enable it to be best placed to meet the future opportunities and challenges the housing sector faces.×
Included in the top 25 most influential people in housing, he is a keen advocate of innovation. He uses digital as an enabler to drive fundamental change in how businesses operate. He is also a disruptor in the ‘future of work’ debate.
Nick has been paperless for the last 16 years and introduced a fully flexible/ remote working approach which has driven down operating costs. He has led the move for 90+% of Trust customer led transactions to be online self-service by 2018, driven by the introduction of Universal Credit and the ‘Housing Graph of Doom.’
He writes regularly for Inside Housing and HR Magazine as one of their columnists and tweets on a regular basis (@nickatkin_hht).
