Management and Governance

Our Directors

MHA is a group structure comprising the charity, Methodist Homes, Methodist Homes Housing Association and MHA Auchlochan. MHA is run by a team of executive directors and governed by non-executive trustees.

Executive Directors

Adrian Bagg, Chief Executive, Methodist Homes (MHA)

Adrian joined MHA in March 2014. Since joining, he has helped the organisation to put in place a clear ten-year strategy (2015–2025), which focuses on growing the number of people that MHA serves to 50,000, through our Care Homes, Retirement Living and Community Services, whilst also increasing the organisation’s profile and impact through our discretionary services and policy work.

Previously Chief Executive of Papworth Trust, the leading disability charity, Adrian led the organisation to work with more disabled people every year. He trebled contracted and fundraised income, significantly grew volunteering, and developed the charity’s policy work.

Before joining the charitable sector, Adrian worked as a Director in the private sector for several global, complex organisations including Diageo, P&O and Amersham. During this time, he was involved in several mergers and acquisitions and built a track record of helping organisations to use better processes and technology to serve their customers’ needs.

He is a Lay Preacher and Trustee of the Children’s Society.
