Electrical Safety First has announced the appointment of Sarah Frost, as the new chair of its board of trustees.
She has extensive experience of transformational ICT and digital change programmes, predominantly in the financial services, as well as a long-standing involvement with the voluntary sector.
Ms Frost, who has an MBA from Bayes Business School and was awarded the Financial Times Non-Executive Director Diploma, worked for more than 20 years in a variety of roles in the financial sector, including the Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest, and Coutts.
In addition to wide-ranging commercial skills, she has in-depth knowledge of the voluntary sector and non-profit organisations.
Lesley Rudd, chief executive of Electrical Safety First, said: “We are delighted that Sarah has accepted the role of chair of trustees. The depth and range of her skill set, including her background in risk management, corporate governance, and financial reporting – as well as her hands-on experience of the Third sector – make her an ideal fit for this role.
“Sarah takes over from Andy Chaplin, who I would like to thank for his excellent work and commitment to the charity, particularly the support he has provided to me since I joined Electrical Safety First ─ and also his assistance in helping the charity navigate through the pandemic and post-pandemic landscape.”
