Former Haringey Council leader appointed director at regeneration firm

Pinnacle Group has appointed Claire Kober, previously leader of the London Borough of Haringey, as their new director of housing.


Kober left Haringey in controversial circumstances earlier this year, choosing to resign before deciding whether to approve the Haringey Development Vehicle (HDV) – a £2bn joint venture first mooted in 2015 to develop 6,400 new homes in the area.

As director of housing at Pinnacle, she will lead on the enhancement of the customer experience within existing contracts, new housing operating models, on-going development of Pinnacle’s PRS offer, and the refinement of Pinnacle’s leasehold block management services.

Pinnacle Group, a housing and regeneration management firm, say they appointed her for her ‘leadership skills and her experience as an innovator.’

Group Chief Executive, Perry Lloyd, said: ‘Housing and community are at the core of Pinnacle Group and Claire’s leadership skills and understanding of the sector are exactly what we need to develop our housing management services division.

‘Housing is a complicated business with a broad range of stakeholders. Our aim is always to get the best people to drive Pinnacle Group forward in the best possible way and we know we have this in Claire.’

Claire Kober, said: ‘High-quality housing is the centrepiece of successful thriving communities. That is why I am delighted to be joining Pinnacle Group as director of housing, ensuring that the company continues to play a leading role in the provision of high-quality housing management services.

Pinnacle Group has a long track record of working with a range of partners to deliver innovative housing services solutions. I’m looking forward to helping the company grow and develop its offer by creating sustainable communities where people want to live.’
