Acting Brigade Secretary / Deputy

Friday 8th January 2016

Following the departure of Andrew Johnston, I am pleased to advise that with immediate effect Bill Stevenson has been appointed as Acting Brigade Secretary / CEO and Jonathan Eales as his Deputy. I am sure you will all do your best to support them in these roles I know they will both appreciate your prayers at this time too.

Bill has been Director for Scotland over the past six years, and Jonathan is the Brigade’s Business Director. Both of them are experienced BB leaders and the Trustees are grateful that they are willing to take on these roles.

We are also delighted that Jan Williamson has returned to work at Brigade HQ on a limited basis, 3 hours per day Monday – Thursday.

I can assure you that the Brigade Executive will be working hard to determine the best way forward for the Brigade, and as we start a New Year I hope that we can all look forward to continuing to develop our organisation.

Matt Smith
Chairman Brigade Executive
