Gary Brown, who has worked at Santander for 13 years in a variety of roles including managing operations, transformation and the introduction of General Data Protection Regulations, will join the board on 1 August.
Gary is a qualified chartered accountant with a Master’s in Business from University of Warwick, and has previously been a Finance Director at a variety of leisure and retail companies.
He is also a non-executive director for a Midlands Academies Trust and has previously been Chairman of Wolfhampcote Parish Council, but this is his first role in healthcare.
Gary said: “I like to keep busy, and two areas that I wanted to get more involved in were education and healthcare.
“The opportunity to be a non-executive director at EMAS came up and I jumped at the chance as not only is it working in the NHS, but the ambulance service involves lots of logistics too which I have experience with.
“I’m excited about joining EMAS and being a small part of making things better both in the service and for the patients.”
In his spare time Gary enjoys running and has completed marathons in London, Paris, Stockholm and Amsterdam to raise money for charity.
Gary lives in Leicestershire with his wife and two children, aged 15 and 19.
Mojgan Sani is also joining us as an associate non-executive director which is part of a 12-month development program run by NHS Improvement.
Pauline Tagg, Chairman of the EMAS Trust Board, said: " I am delighted to welcome Mojgan and Gary to our Trust Board and to EMAS."
