Changes to the CFG Board of Trustees

Simon Hopkins reluctantly stepped off the CFG Board recently due to the pressures of a new day-job. As a result the Board has co-opted Kevin O’Brien, from Clic Sargent, who was previously on CFG’s Finance and Audit committee, into the vacant Board position. Kevin will stand for election (for a full term) later in the year. A big welcome to Kevin O’Brien as our newest Board member!

We have also made two recent changes to the Board officers:

  1. Gary Forster has moved into the Deputy Chair role in preparation for taking over from Nicki Deeson, and to see, at first hand, how the Board officers’ positions work with the Chair when Nicki steps down. Bridget Janssen kindly offered to step aside to allow this change to happen.
  1. Sam Husband has taken over the Treasurer position, replacing our previous Treasurer John Tranter who had to step out of the officeholder role due to personal commitments.  The Treasurer will now be known as the Chair of the Finance & Audit Committee.

Nicki says: “I would like to give significant thanks to John and Bridget for their fantastic support as Deputy Chair and Treasurer. I would also like to take this moment to welcome Gary and Sam into their new officeholder roles.”  See the current Board.
