Byfield said he was delighted to be joining. He said: “As an award-winning association, Ardenglen places great emphasis on supporting its communities, both in terms of building new homes which are very much needed in Castlemilk, and in its regeneration work.”
The housing association also welcomes Hayleigh Rennie, as Housing Assistant; Kelly Burns as senior customer Services Assistant; William Boale, as Housing Officer and Jacqui Mills who joins as Corporate and Compliance Officer.
Chief Executive Audrey Simpson welcomed the five new appointments, saying she was delighted to have them on board. She said: “We have a great team at Ardenglen.

“Many of our tenants are suffering greater financial hardship than ever before, and we will have a key focus on value for money and innovative working, with first class customer services at the heart of everything we do. The five new staff are an important addition to ensure we can achieve our ambitions.”
