Trust Welcomes New Non-Executive Director

Published: 01 February 2022 to 31 December 2098

We are pleased to welcome a new Non-Executive Director, Mr Stuart McKinnon-Evans.

Stuart joins our Trust Board today, Tuesday 1 February 2022, for an initial term of 3 years.

He is currently the Chief Finance Officer at the University of Bradford, where he has worked since February 2018. There, Stuart is responsible for finance, planning, procurement, project management, property, and commercial services. He is also the sponsor for the University’s work on sustainability.

Stuart has over 30 years’ experience in financial management, 15 of which at Board level. He has experience in local and central government, further and higher education, health, charities, capital markets, and management consulting. Stuart was Finance Director for the Pension, Disability and Carers Service, and for six years, he was Director of Corporate Services for Bradford Council. He was Treasurer at ADD International for 8 years, a charity specialising in supporting people with disabilities.

In addition, Stuart is fully qualified with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy and his core specialism is not-for-profit financial strategy and management. Over the course of his career, he has prided himself on helping organisations reshape to remain effective and sustainable, and developing strategies for growth and development.

Stuart’s motivation is a commitment to public service, ensuring organisations use resources wisely, and serve well those in the local community who rely on them. This, paired with his experience working with health and social care organisations, particularly in his role at Bradford Council, equips him with a unique skillset and makes him a beneficial appointment to our Trust Board.

Caroline Flint, Chair, Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“I am very pleased to announce Stuart McKinnon-Evans as our new Audit Chair Non-Executive Director at the Trust. Stuart’s Board-level finance experience in national and local government and higher education sectors will be of great benefit to our Board. I am looking forward to working with him over the coming months.”

When asked about his ambitions when joining the Trust, Stuart stated:

“I’m most looking forward to working with a high performing organisation, to ensure that we continue to work together to run things well, responsibly and accountably, for the communities we serve.”

We hope you join us in wishing Stuart a warm welcome and look forward to getting to know him better as he takes post. For more information about our Trust Board, and other Non-Executive Directors, please click here.
