CTA appoint Alan B Jones as their new Chair of Trustees
The Board of Trustees at CTA are pleased to announce the appointment of Alan B Jones as its new Chair.
After an extensive search led by a panel of CTA member trustees, Alan has been appointed to succeed Susan Evans who stepped down after four years as Chair in September 2020.
Alan joins us following a distinguished career in transport from which he brings significant leadership and governance experience. He is currently the Chair of the Board of Trustees for The Institute of Logistics and Transport UK as well as an International Vice President and Trustee for the Chartered Institute of Logistics International.
“Community transport is such an important sector and one that makes an enormous difference to the lives of so many people in so many different communities,” said Alan. “I know how hard community transport providers work, often without the recognition they deserve, so I’m passionate about ensuring community transport gets a much higher profile to deliver the best services it can. I’m looking forward to working with the Board of Trustees and the team at CTA to raise the profile of the organisation and to support its members in all their endeavours.”
CTA Vice Chair Lawrence Wilson, who led the recruitment process, said:
“I am delighted to welcome Alan as the CTA’s new Chair. Alan has enjoyed an illustrious career across different parts of the transport sector and has held various senior leadership roles and non-Executive positions. The skills and expertise which Alan can offer will be highly valuable to the CTA as it supports the community transport sector to develop its profile and grow in influence and impact after a very challenging year. As the current Chair of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Alan has experience in leading a membership organisation which will be an added bonus for the CTA.”
