Community Foundation welcomes new directors
Three new directors have joined the Community Foundation's Board. Rupert Dorey, Emily Litten and Jane St Pier were appointed following an extensive recruitment process.
Wayne Bulpitt, our Chair, welcomed the three new appointees:
“A board’s success depends on finding the balance of complementary skills and experiences. Emily and Jane both have extensive experience in founding organisations and delivering a range of services within the voluntary sector, while Rupert’s extensive background in the financial and corporate markets will help the Foundation encourage mutually beneficial relationships between corporates and local charities. We’re pleased to have attracted directors of such calibre.”
