Pete Hoey Stands Down As HSB Chief Officer

Pete Hoey, Chief Officer for Halifax Society For The Blind (HSB) is to stand down at the end of December.

He’s released a statement looking back at his time in the role:

“I wanted to pass on my gratitude to everybody who has worked so hard to make a real difference for local people with sight loss over these past four years. It’s pleasingly remarkable to see how far HSB has come during this time, and to also know that our move to Southgate is as sustainable as it is exciting.

There is never a perfect time to move on, but this is the right time for me. I’m still a part of the community which helped make this change happen, and I look forward to catching up with many of you when I actually use services, instead of managing them! There are too many of you to thank as individuals, for your part in taking us forward in so many different ways, but you know who you are, and what you’ve done to help us achieve – so sincere thanks to each of you.

It has been a real privilege to have led HSB’s work from where we were in 2018, and I wish the whole HSB family good luck and best wishes, as our new Southgate building becomes a stunning reality.”
