ANDY HARROP

Andy was appointed as a trustee of Diverse Abilities in 2010 and was then made chairman in March 2013. Andy chairs board meetings, ensures appropriate governance and works with the board and senior management to ensure strategy is in place for the charity. To the board, Andy brings many skills and expertise from his working career including leadership, developing strategies and delivering high performance. Andy said: “I didn’t have plans to be a trustee but started some consultancy work for Diverse Abilities when I retired and then once that was completed I was asked whether I’d like to be a trustee. I am extremely glad I took up the offer as I find it intellectually stimulating and it enables me to use the skills and expertise I have built up over the years, plus it is a way of making a contribution to society.”
