New Year, New Area and a New Area Manager
Published: Fri, 2 Jan 2015
The Housing Executive has aligned its offices to mirror the new mid-Ulster ‘super council’.
The Housing Executive has created a ‘Mid-Ulster’ area comprising offices in Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt. Heading up this new area is Michael Dallat.
Michael has been with the Housing Executive for 37 years and will be responsible for the local offices in Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt. He will be primarily based in the Magherafelt office where he had previously worked.
Michael began his career with the Housing Executive as a management trainee and over the years has held a variety of positions including District Manager for a number of areas with five years served in Magherafelt and the manager for Housing Benefit in the West which included Derry, Strabane, Limavady and Magherafelt.
Most recently Michael was Area Manager for the Housing Executive’s West area which includes the organisation’s offices in Derry/Londonderry and Strabane.
Speaking about his new role Michael said:
“I am delighted with the creation of the ‘Mid-Ulster’ Area which aligns with the new Super-Council. In returning to the area I look forward to renewing relationships with people from the area I worked with in the past. I want to ensure the continued delivery of a comprehensive housing service to the residents of the Housing Executive’s mid-Ulster area. The local offices’ teams already have a reputation for a high standard of service which I look forward to supporting.
“I aim to build on the already well-established good working relationships the offices have with our tenants, network of local community groups and elected representatives.”
Comghal McQuillan, South Region Manager, added:
“I am delighted to welcome Michael to the area; his extensive experience in the Housing Executive will add extra depth to an already excellent team. Our tenants and wider customers can rest assured the high standard of service they have come to expect from the mid-Ulster offices will continue.”
