To do this, it’s vital that our Board of Directors and Working Groups represent the diversity of the businesses that call Colmore home.

“Kate, Rosie, Tim and Vicky were well and truly put through their paces as part of the recruitment process, but passed with flying colours. I’m sure they will make great additions to the team and I look forward to working with them more closely over the coming months.”
