New Governors Appointed
As you may recall, we wrote to you earlier in the year to outline our plans to recruit new members to the Board of Governors.
We subsequently received a large volume of high-calibre applications and we are extremely grateful to all those who put their names forward for their interest, time, and support.
Following a comprehensive selection process, I am delighted to announce the appointment of three new Governors.
Chris Green, Joseph Howe and Simon Fowler, are all parents or guardians of children currently at our school, and will join the Board with immediate effect.
Chris Green has served with Merseyside Police for 27 years, and is currently Assistant Chief Constable, leading the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit. Joe Howe is the Executive Director of the Energy Research Institute at the University of Chester, and is the North West academic lead for the UK Industrial Decarbonisation Research and Innovation Centre. Simon Fowler worked in the John Lewis Partnership for 34 years in numerous senior roles including as managing director of its flagship department stores in Oxford Street, and most recently as its Director of Communications, where he was responsible for the partnership’s communications strategy.
On behalf of the Board of Governors, I warmly congratulate them upon their appointment to the Board, and look forward to working with them in the future. I am confident they will each bring their extensive experience, energy and passion to bear on behalf of Merchant Taylors’ and greatly support our combined efforts to help propel the school to new heights in the continued pursuit of excellence.
With my kindest regards
Philip Marshall QC
Chair of the Board of Governors
