Elections to the Society Board

A total of two valid nominations to the Society Board were received from Brian Phillips and Scott Moreton. Rule 57 of the Society states: “The Society shall have a Board of Directors comprising not less than six and not more than twelve persons.”

The two nominations will result in the Board having the minimum six Directors as defined in Rule 57, and therefore rule 9.4 of the Election Policy will apply: “… The exception shall be that should the failure to elect any of the validly nominated candidates leave the Board below the minimum required under the Rules for them to act, all validly nominated candidates shall be deemed elected by the EMG and this declared at the AGM.”

Although there will be no election, each candidate has provided a profile to support their nomination:

Brian Phillips:

My name is Brian Phillips. I am a recently retired fully qualified accountant of over 40 years service in the Finance Departments at various local authorities. Thirty of these have been post qualification.

I joined the Trust Board in January 2016 as a Co-opted member having replied to an advert for the Treasurer’s vacancy. This role has suited me well, complementing the vast financial experience I have from my day-job. During this period, and particularly, more recently, I have also managed payments back to Members of Community Shares that they purchased in the early days of the Trust as well as helping with the transition from a legacy manual member system to a new automated one. I have also managed the issue of new membership cards after an absence of a few years.

I have held the Treasurer position since 2016 and have also been the Chair between 2020 to 2022 helping the Board through Covid and also helping to secure the successful takeover of the Club from the WST to RR McReynolds Company.

I look forward to continuing to play an active part on the Board, both helping it as well as the WST Members.

Scott Moreton:

I currently work in the field of pharmaceutical manufacturing across many different sites in the UK. I’m involved in preparing and presenting for regulatory audits as well as being involved in new projects.

Being part of a young family now I don’t get to as many away games as I used to but I have been a Wrexham Supporter since the 70s, hence I’ve have seen alot in that time. 

I voted “Yes” for the proposed takeover but maintain the requirement for the WST is still important.

I believe passionately in fairness for all.

My interests haven’t changed much over the years and I’m still passionate about Music and books, listening and reading the old fashion way.
