simon Simon Elliott

Newcastle CVS is delighted to announce that our new Chair is Simon Elliott.  Simon is the HR Leader of Procter & Gamble Newcastle Innovation Centre.  Simon has served as a trustee and Chair of the Board of the Tyneside Cinema and also as Chair of the North Tyneside Regeneration Partnership.  As a supporter and executive member of a local Scout group, he has shaken a bucket outside B&Q more than once!  Simon hopes he will be able to bring his experience in these differing roles to the post of independent Chair of Newcastle CVS.

At the same time, this means we must say goodbye to Ralph Firth who has been our Chair for eight years and steered us through some difficult times.  Ralph has led the board and supported staff and taken the organisation through major changes.  We will miss his thoughtful and consistent support.
