New non-executive director joins Board

Lee O'Bryan has joined the Trust as an associate non executive director, in anticipation of Mike Roberts' retirement from the Board in October.

Lee is Deputy Director and Head of Modernisation & Change at Royal Mail with over 20 years Board level experience there, including roles as Operations Director for South Wales and the South West and HR Director for the Commercial Business Unit.

For much of his career, he has championed the importance of putting people and service users first.  On first moving to the west country in 1986, he worked for the NHS in Bristol. He is actively involved with the local community, as a trustee of the Bristol based Hop Skip and Jump charity, and is an advisor to the Wiltshire based Community First and Learning Curve charities. He also works with Bath Area Mediation, who provide mediation solutions to individuals and organisations across the region.  It was this community involvement which led to Lee wanting to get involved with the NHS.

AWP Chair, Felicity Longshaw explained that Lee would become a full non executive director in October.  "Having been a member of the Board since 2002, Mike announced some time ago that he intended to retire when his current appointment came to an end, having provided almost a decade of support to the Trust" said Felicity.

"Appointing Lee now as an associate means that not only will the Trust be able to benefit from his expertise, but he will be able to learn more about the workings of the Trust by the time he succeeds Mike as a full non executive director.

"Lee brings with him valuable business expertise and experience as well as knowledge which will benefit AWP at this time.  We are all delighted to welcome Lee and I look forward to working with him".
