NEW CHAIRMAN OF THE MEDIA TRUST NAMED IN THE FALKLANDS
By J. Brock (FINN)
It has been announced from Government House that His Excellency the Governor Mr Alan Huckle has appointed Mr Steve Dent as chairman of the Media Trust. He takes over from Ms Karen Lee, who resigned on the birth of her second child on 12 August 2009.
Steve Dent was originally appointed as a Trustee on Media Trust in March ’07.
Current trustees, in addition to Mr Dent, are Mr Andy Brownlee, Ms Sian Davies, Dr Barry Ellsby, and Ms Sonia Felton. Under the Media Trust Ordinance, the Trust must comprise no fewer than 5 and no more than 9 members.
In order to increase the numbers on the Trust, an advertisement will be placed in the local media seeking expressions of interest from members of the public who wish to be considered for appointment.
The Governor has thanked Ms Karen Lee for her strong commitment to the aims of the Media Trust and for all her hard work both as Trustee and as Chair.
