Churches Housing farewells two directors

Two directors have resigned from Churches Housing’s board and we wish to thank them greatly for their input into our organisation.

03 Derek Yule

Derek Yule was the founding CEO of Churches Housing, says current CEO Magnus Linder. ‘When I took over the reins six years ago, I said that I would let him have a rest before returning as a director on the board.

‘Derek has had so much knowledge and experience, along with a very gracious and supportive attitude. He has some ongoing health issues which are preventing him from continuing his work with the board.

‘I will miss your regular input, Derek, but wish both you and Ellen the very best in “real” retirement.’


Sue King has also stepped down for personal reasons. Magnus Linder says Sue ‘brought a very strategic brain, great skills and knowledge in research and a passionate heart for relieving housing stress with many vulnerable people.

‘Sue was my former boss at Anglicare and her input has seen Anglicare’s Rental Affordability Snapshot become an annual report much anticipated by our sector.

‘We wish you all the best, Sue, and thank you for your input, especially in developing our strategy and business plans.’
