John Quinn, ICAEW accountant
NED at SMART Multi Academy Trust
I had reached a stage of my life where I was looking to use some of my time for charitable purposes. Academy Ambassadors contacted me and explained the role of non-executive directors in Multi-Academy Trusts. I firmly believe that the provision of good quality education contributes to the economic success of the country and the Board of trusts helps in achieving this. Academy Ambassadors explained in detail the role, responsibilities and commitment required and they quickly found a match for me. I am excited about my new role and I look forward to working with my fellow board members.
