New Chair of Trustees appointed at Active Oxfordshire

We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Alan Webb as our new Chair of Trustees here at Active Oxfordshire. Alan will replace Keith Johnston, who is stepping down after having served a seven year term.

Alan brings over 20 years of senior experience in the health service. He has significant experience of multi-agency working and has led numerous successful partnership programmes throughout his career.

He has strong links to the county, having been the Director of Commissioning at Oxfordshire Primary Care Trust (PCT) / CCG from 2007 to 2011. After a successful period as Accountable Officer for 3 CCGs in East Berkshire he is now a freelance management consultant.

In his role as Chair, Alan will oversee the Board of Trustees and together they will guide our work moving forward.

Commenting on the appointment, Chief Executive Paul Brivio said, "Alan is a highly experienced and skilled leader and I am delighted he has been appointed to the position of Chair of Trustees. Alan will bring energy and enthusiasm to the role, alongside his wealth of experience and connections within the health sector."

"We are incredibly grateful to outgoing Chair, Keith Johnston for his excellent leadership and guidance during a period of immense change which included the establishment of Active Oxfordshire as an independent charity. I look forward to working closely with Alan, who joins us at a time when Oxfordshire faces the ticking time bomb of childhood inactivity and we must work hard to change the inequalities in opportunity that many residents face to living active lives. "

Alan Webb, incoming Chair said, "I am delighted to have been appointed to this exciting role. This is a great opportunity for me to work with senior colleagues from across the public, private and voluntary sector to help improve the level of engagement with physical activity and sport across the county. This is an exciting time to be joining the team as we have some real opportunities to make a real difference to so many peoples lives. "
