The Charity Commission has appointed five new trustees to the Young Gamers and Gambling Education Trust (Ygam) board of trustees as part of its new three-year strategy.
Anna Greaves, a 14-year fundraising professional currently working for the homeless charity Crisis UK, is among the new board members.
Clive Reeves, PwC’s global esports leader who has advised multiple international esports businesses, also joins the team.
Paul Morris, a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and current Vice President of Business Risk Management at State Street Corporation, joins the list, as does David Miller, a marketing, gaming, and digital content advisor for War Child.
Finally, Glen Fendley, an experienced charity director with 25 years of industry experience, has worked with the NSPCC and the WWF.
The new board of directors has been formed to lead the organization through the next stages of its existence, which it hopes will see sustained growth and development in the coming years.
“I’m thrilled to welcome our new trustees to the charity and delighted we continue to attract professionals with such ability, experience, and knowledge,” said Mike Wojcik, Chair of Ygam.
“They join the board at an important time for us as we build on our reputation as a sector-leading education charity and develop our ambitious new strategy, which will be launched in early 2023.” It is already clear that the newly revitalized board will accomplish great things in assisting the excellent staff team in achieving our social purpose.”
