Following the recent appointment of Stephen Taylor as the new Chair of Bath Bridge, the current Directors are also pleased to welcome two new Directors to its Board.
Stephen Taylor takes over as Chair having been a Director for several years. As a longstanding Bath resident, passionate about the city and helping find ways to fulfil its potential as a city within which to live and work, he brings over 30 years experience of working with large public and private sector organisations to create high performance cultures. He is also a Trustee of Bath Festivals and of Dorothy House.
Robin Kerr and Sarah Williment join former Chair, Philip Raby, Steve Fuller, Adam Powell and Van DuBose in the Bridge's endeavours for 2021 and beyond.
Robin Kerr, a longstanding Bath resident for over 50 years, will be known to many having chaired the Lansdown Crescent Association (LCA) for seven years, and the Federation of Bath Residents’ Associations for six (preceded by five years as its Secretary). He remains a Trustee of the LCA. He brings a wealth of experience from his 32 years of working life in a wide variety of posts in the Royal Navy: at sea, in research and development and in Royal Dockyards. On retirement he joined Lockheed Martin where he was NW Europe Naval representative for eight and a half years.
Sarah Williment has worked with Bath Bridge since November 2019, when she took on the role of Programme Director for the Bath Future Talent Programme replacing Dr Tracey Stead, former Programme Director for the previous three years. She works for the University of Bath as Deputy Head of the Skills Centre, where she has been for ten years. Sarah brings 30 years experience of fulfilling a number of leadership and management roles in adult and higher education, including in the areas of programme and project management, skills development, educational policy, marketing and communications, learning technology and e-learning development.
