I am the chair of the Finance Committee and also sit on the Income Generation and Audit Committees. I have been a trustee since 2010.

I find it very rewarding being a volunteer trustee for such an essential and valued Charity and trying to put years of diverse financial and management experience to use for the benefit of the Cornish community, of which I have been a part for 40+ years.

I am a Chartered Accountant, following an early start as a Mining Geologist.  I was a partner in the largest practice of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisors in Cornwall for 25 years and the Managing Partner for 12 of those.  I was also the Chairman of the Financial Services company we built from scratch to run in parallel with the advisory business.

Until recently I was also a Director and Chairman of AE Rodda & Sons Ltd, a £30m+ turnover local company.
