Nile Istephan - Chief Executive

Nile Istephan


I joined Eildon as Chief Executive in April 2010 having previously undertaken a number of senior roles in the Scottish Government.

In my role as Chief Executive at Eildon Housing Association I currently lead a staff team of over 200 people working across a range of housing, care and support services. I am responsible for the day to day operation of the business and report to a Board of Management who oversee the strategic direction of the Association. I have recently completed six years on the Board of the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, serving five of these as Vice Chairman.

I have a BA(Hons) in Economics, and a MPhil in Urban Policy. I am a Chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Housing.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, travelling and trying to improve my golf.
