Acting Chair of Governors
Mr Bill Maxwell
Term of office ends:.
No business interests
I am 61 years of age, married with two grown up children and born in Hull, although 12 years of my working life was spent in Derbyshire. I am retired, after working for Reckitt Benckiser for 35 years in Hull and Derby in senior manufacturing roles.
My interests are Rugby Union, which I played for 26 years and gardening. I was also part of the Scouting movement for 25 years. I was a governor at Ings Primary school and Chair for over 6 years. I have recently been designated a National Leader of Governance.
I volunteered to be a Trust Board Member as I believe the MAT is a key enabler to driving school improvement and improving pupil outcomes. I feel that my commitment, Governance experience and work experience can support the aims of the Trust and the Trust Board.
My industry experience encompasses multi million pound budget responsibility, improving performance through KPI management, interpersonal skills gained from managing teams of up to 150 people during my career and mentoring skills to improve team performance. All of these, I believe, will be useful to me in carrying out the role of a Trustee.
