Chan Abraham is an innovative and inspirational business leader, entrepreneur and Anglia Ruskin alumnus.
Chan began his career in public service back in 1974, and would go on to lead multi-agency initiatives in areas as diverse as community development, health, crime reduction and economic development.
Driven by his own vision for change, Chan created a new company, Huntingdonshire Housing Partnership in 1997. He negotiated private finance to pay £65m to purchase the entire housing stock of 7,000 homes from Huntingdonshire District Council. Rents were restrained to affordable levels and £40 million was invested in improving tenants' homes and in providing new services.
