Richard Holman has been appointed as the new Chairman of the board of trustees of Alabaré. Richard had previously been Vice-Chairman of the board of trustees and will succeed Alabaré founder Reverend John Proctor, who stepped down from the role at the end of April. Richard has been involved with Alabaré for a number of years, having previously enjoyed a successful career as an engineer and developing large power stations across the UK.

Upon his appointment Richard commented;

“I have been associated with Alabaré for approaching two decades and this has been a humbling experience as I have met staff and volunteers. The work we do combines quality with care and when I visit our homes and services this shines through.

Therefore as I commit to the role of chairman it is with a sense of pride in the organisation, it is important to me we build on past achievements and maintain the level of caring for which we are known.”

In addition to the appointment of Richard Holman, Phil Davis has been appointed the new Vice-Chairman of the board of trustees. Phil joined as a trustee in 2015, having worked at senior levels within further education and private training providers. 

Phil said;

“I am delighted to be taking on the role of Vice Chairman of Alabaré. As a current Chief Executive of an education and training charity and with experience of both the public and private sectors, the role feels like a natural fit and one to which, I would like to think, I can bring added value. In particular, I have a successful track record of identifying growth opportunities within the charity sector and am hoping to tap into my skills and experience of company management and capital fundraising in relation to this new challenge."
