We are pleased to announce that Graham Lane, governor at Redbourn Infant and Nursery school, has been elected as the new primary phase non-executive director (NED) to the HfL Board as from 11th June 2014.
Graham is passionate about education and brings with him a wealth of experience from the education and commercial sectors. He is vice chair of the Corporation (Board of Governors) at Oaklands College, vice chair of the business group comprising Hertfordshire National Apprenticeship Service Ambassadors Network and a governor of Redbourn Infant and Nursery School. In addition, Graham is managing director of a Hertfordshire IT business and sits on several business boards including Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The vacancy for primary non-executive director arose as John Grubb, governor at Wheatcroft Primary School and chair of the HfL Board, announced he would be standing down from the HfL Board as from 31st March 2014 due to work commitments.
The HfL Board includes six school elected non-executive directors, two council appointed non-executive directors and two Board appointed independent non-executive directors with commercial experience alongside one executive director, HfL’s Managing Director.
