Board Appointments and Resignations
Appointments
Andrew Allan is appointed to the Board of Trustees.

The appointment was made after a number of meetings with Mr Allan and the CEO, the Director of Finance & Commercial Services also met with Mr Allan.

The Nominations Committee met to discuss and agree the nomination which was then presented to the Board of Trustees followed by East Renfrewshire Council for ratification.

Resignations
The two longest serving members of the Board of Trustees, the Chair, Jim Wilson and Professor Grant Jarvie have come to the end of the four year tenure for Board members.

Professor Jarvie will remain as a Board member.

Jim Wilson is standing down with advice from the Board as to when the best time to leave is, giving as much notice as possible to allow for a seamless transition.

The Chair was advised that a three month lead in to his departure will allow ERCLT to seek candidates for nomination to the Board of Trustees.

The Chair will remain on the Board until the end of the next Board meeting on 26 February 2019, serving the full four years on the Board.

The Chair paid tribute to Brian Davidson, the former Board member and Chair of the Finance, Audit & Risk Committee who resigned from the Board of Trustees on 9 September 2019. [Note from poster: Think that should be 2018]

The financial expertise and wider engagement Brian brought to the role since 2015 was commendable.

The diligence and scrutiny brought to bear as a director and chair of the FAR committee was exemplary and played an important part in the advances already made by the Trust and those now in train.

It was absolutely in keeping with our experience of Brian’s professionalism, that he ensured the 2017/2018 Annual Report and Accounts were concluded before tendering his resignation.


7.Report by the Chair of Finance Audit & Risk Committee (FAR)

The Board is asked to consider the report and comment on matters as appropriate.

The report was delivered by the acting Chair of the FAR Committee, Professor Grant Jarvie who expressed his sorrow regarding the departure of Brian Davidson, the previous Chair of the FAR Committee, and thanked him for his contribution to both the Board and the FAR Committee.

Update -

New Trust Board Member Mr Rob Crusher

Cllr Danny Devlin has tendered his resignation from the Trust Board.


Full Council Meeting Wednesday 1 May 2019 -

Agenda Item -

7. East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure Trust Board Appointments – Report by Director of Education (copy attached, pages 39 - 42).


Extract -

4. Following the resignation of Jim Wilson from the Board of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure (ERCL) at the completion of his four-year term, the Board has conducted a recruitment and selection exercise according to the process previously set out by the Nominations Committee in accordance with the Trust Articles of Association.

Mr Wilson was an Independent member of the Board and served as Chair of the Trust and of the HR, Health and Safety and Appeals Committee from the launch of the Trust until his resignation.

8. A consultant was retained to run a recruitment campaign; in addition candidates were sought via the company’s contacts database.

Following shortlisting, assessment and screening the Nominations Committee met on Tuesday 12 March 2019 to consider three candidates.

The committee comprised five board members (two elected members, two independents, one staff representative), with HR support.

9. The field was extremely strong, but after interview and careful deliberation the Committee chose Mr Rob Crusher.

Mr. Crusher is both a local resident and MBA-qualified and professionally chartered Director.

He has an extensive track record in senior executive roles developing, managing and operating multi-million-pound contracts in various business and commercial sectors, and across the UK, Europe and the US.

He is also an experienced Non-Executive Director with 15 years’ service on the board of £10m turnover ALEO organisation, responsible for strategic steering and governance associated with fiscal, legal, and regulatory compliance in the public and third sector.

In addition he is also a volunteer business coach and mentor in third sector.

10. The Trust’s Depute and Acting Chair formally wrote to the Board to seek their formal approval to invite Mr Crusher to join the Board subject to Council Agreement.

Board approval was unanimous.

References were subsequently taken up all of which are highly satisfactory.

11. The Board of East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure therefore recommend Mr Rob Crusher to the Council for appointment to the Board of the Trust.

12. Councillor Devlin has tendered his resignation from the Trust Board.

In view of this the Council needs to consider the appointment of a replacement elected member.

If I am wrong please forgive me, I thought Mr Wilson resigned prior to his full term ending.

Why have we not been provided with a reason for Daniel Devlins resignation?
