New non-executive director brings wealth of experience
We're delighted to welcome Barry Dennington, our new
non-executive director who joined AWP in August.
We are very much looking forward to working with Barry and
drawing on his impressive and varied professional experience.
Barry, who was most recently chief operating officer with
semiconductor experts Plessey and previously senior
vice president at Philips / NXP, has extensive leadership
experience across the global electronic systems and
microelectronics sectors. He has experience of setting up and
leading operations in the USA, India, China and throughout Europe,
as well as serving on industry boards. He also holds an MBA from
The City University London.
Barry has lived in Wiltshire for many years and is also chair of
the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership. He said,
"I'm thrilled to have this opportunity, which is very different
from anything I've done before. I'm looking forward to applying my
business expertise to help AWP move forward. I look forward to
learning about mental health and hearing the experiences of service
users, carers and staff."
