LANTRA announces three new members to Board of Trustees.
LANTRA, an independent, awarding/accreditation body which exists to help the land-based and environment industries meet their skills needs, has appointed three new trustees.
As a not-for-profit charity, the Board of Trustees is a vital part of the organisation, instrumental in setting the strategic direction and overseeing performance.
The new trustees are Trefor Owens, Euryn Jones and Helen Taylor.
Trefor is an experienced chartered forester and senior leader in sustainable land management. He has extensive experience working with and sitting on land-based industry committees and advisory boards for organisations such as Forestry and Land Scotland, DEFRA and Welsh Government.
Euryn has a wealth of experience in agricultural education where he has worked as both an Agricultural Lecturer and Farms Director. His current role as Regional Agricultural Director for HSBC, sees him working closely with farmers to develop and grow their businesses.
Helen is a committee advisor and Chartered Surveyor with governance experience across the UK’s public and private sectors.
David Llewelyn, who took over as Lantra Chair of Trustees in 2022, said: “Lantra works tirelessly to address the needs of the land-based and environment sector, anyone working in the sector will appreciate these needs are ever changing and often complex. It is critical that we have the breadth of skills and experience on the board to guide and support the staff team in delivering the charity’s purpose. I’m confident that the new trustees joining us today bring expertise and knowledge to complement our existing members and contribute to Lantra’s continued success.”
Lantra CEO Marcus Potter, added: “We are confident that the three new appointments bring a diversity of experience and a genuine enthusiasm for the sector, that will make an invaluable contribution to the Board’s future activities.”
