During the past six months Breakthrough has undertaken a full review of its Executive Board and leadership team.
Following Colin Philpott’s retirement, Dr. Trevor Higgins was appointed as Chief Executive of Bradford Breakthrough having moved across from his previous role as Chairman of the Board. Bob Gomersall has taken on the role of Chairman.
The board has been further strengthened by two more senior appointments – Amjad Pervez and Martin Sweeney have been appointed as Directors of the Company.
CEO Dr Trevor Higgins said – “Having held the post as Chairman for nearly seven years, I am delighted to take on the role as CEO of Bradford Breakthrough. I am also delighted that long standing board member and Director, Bob Gomersall, has agreed to take on the role of Chairman. Bob is extremely well respected both in Bradford and, more widely, across the region. Both these appointments, together with the appointments of Amjad and Martin, will ensure continuity at the top of the organisation.
Working with the new Board I am looking forward to continuing the great work that Colin has undertaken to see Bradford positioned where it should be as a leading city in the UK.”
