Faisal Hussain, Chief Executive of the Scheme, comments:

“HICS’s three pillars are to protect consumers, support its membership and raise industry standards, all of which closely align to the NHIC’s mission, vision and values. I am thrilled to be appointed as a Non-Executive Director on their board, representing HICS, and to help to deliver their message and success to the home improvement industry.”

Anna Scothern, Chief Executive National Home Improvement Council, comments:

“The NHIC is in a great place, and it’s an exciting time to welcome new Directors to the board at a time when the home improvement sector is recognised as having so much to offer. Not only to the zero carbon pathway, but also to building safety, consumer protection, digital transformation and addressing the skills gap. I am looking forward to working with Faisal to continue to strengthen the organisation and improve the nation’s homes together”.
