    The following Directors are putting themselves up for re-election at the AGM on October 30th

    Heather Brock

    Managing Director of a local business for over 20 years, Heather`s key strengths lie in her financial management skills. She has a love of sport and decided to get involved in Welsh Rowing after spending several years as a Mum on the riverbank.

    The following is a new Director appointed by the Board earlier this year and is now seeking ratification at the AGM

    Andrew Kilsby

    Andrew graduated in 1968 with a First Class Degree in Chemistry. His logical next steps were to qualify as an Inspector of Taxes and then as a Chartered Accountant. As an accountant Andrew became a Partner in what is now the fourth largest firm in the world, working in the City of London. Back in 1990 he decided to return to Wales and opened his own accountancy practice. That is based in Newport and employs 50 people looking after and protecting the interests of Welsh business.

    Shortly after returning to Wales Andrew was asked to join the Board of the Trust running the Royal Gwent Hospital and a number of other local units. When that Trust was merged with the North Gwent Hospitals, Andrew stayed on the Board serving, in all, a 10 year period. When this came to an end Andrew – logical as ever – filled the time by taking up a sporting interest in the form of the martial arts in which he now holds a Third Dan Black Belt.

    Both Andrew Williams and Caroline Spanton will be standing down at the AGM due to their terms coming to an end. The board are currently recruiting to fill these vacancies.
