Bruce Haagensen, NLA Representative for the North-East, has won the Lifetime Achievement at this year’s North East Student Housing Awards (NESHA).

The awards were created three years ago and are delivered by Leap Marketing and Events, who work with landlords, letting agencies, universities, student hall management companies, and local authority housing teams throughout the region.

Company founder Paul Allison explains: “The region is home to over 105,000 students, many of whom are looking for accommodation. Figures show that the student economy brings over £1 billion into the North East so it’s important that young people who come to live here have a great experience in their homes as well as in classes and out and about.

“We are confident that by working with all the different parties we can ensure that students benefit from having responsible and fair landlords and that other residents are able to raise concerns, if they have them, and be confident they will be addressed.

"I was absolutely delighted to award Bruce the Newcastle Lifetime Achievement Award at NESHA 2017. In the 17 years I have known him Bruce has been a tireless campaigner and champion of good landlords and their rights. He embodies the excellence in student housing we seek to recognise with these awards.”

The NLA congratulates Bruce Haagensen on his achievement, and well-earned recognition for all his hard work in the community.
