As a result of personal circumstances unfortunately James Williamson has decided that he can no longer fulfil the Chair position at Energize and has subsequently resigned from this role with the organisation with immediate effect.  It was a difficult decision for him which arose as a result of several reasons but rather than dwelling on these we would just want to wish him well in the future and move on.


We're pleased to announce that Ray Sheldon has taken on the role on an interim basis until we can find a suitable permanent replacement.  Ray has 10 years’ experience with Energize and was one of the founding Trustees when we moved to Charitable Company status in 2012.  


Chris Child commented 'it is a shame that James felt he couldn't continue but I am delighted to be working with Ray and also look forward to assisting him and the Board find a new permanent Chair in due course.'


We don't think there will be any operational issues as a result of this but if there are any matters that any partners would wish to discuss as a consequence please get in touch.
