SportsAble Appoints New Trustee
John Wilkinson has joined the Board of Trustees and brings a wealth of experience in financial management.
John is an ACMA – Chartered Management Accountant with a Diploma in Marketing and BA (Hons) in Business Studies from Nottingham Trent University. For the past six years, John led the finance department of German games and puzzle manufacturer Ravensburg Limited. Prior to that, he has helped a variety of organisations align internal business processes to achieve maximum profitability.
Now John is enjoying retirement and finding more time for his passions which include playing and umpiring Cricket, hockey and tennis, plus walking and acting as a School Governor.
Speaking of his appointment, John said: “I believe the Charity provides invaluable opportunities through the world of sport which include self-development together with the social interaction that is so much the fabric of clubs. The Charity aligns very much with my life-long passion and involvement with sport – playing, officiating and in an administrative capacity.
“In the future, I hope the “Virtual” world that so many have been living in over the past 6 months will soon be over and that SportsAble members will be returning in person to resume participation in all the wonderful sports and activities offered by the Charity.”
