Simon Drakeford elected new chairman of BOSS Federation
| 21 May, 2019
The BOSS Federation has announced that Simon Drakeford, CEO of the EO Group, has been elected to be the new BOSS chairman at its recent board meeting.
Drakeford will lead the board in a non-executive and voluntary capacity in addition to his current executive responsibilities at the EO Group. He will help to develop and guide the strategy and activities of the organisation over the next important years. He has spent the last three-and-half-years actively involved as one of the non-executive directors of the BOSS board, and was at the heart of the rebranding and repositioning of BOSS during that time. He takes over as chairman with immediate effect.
Drakeford commented: “With the appointment of Amy Hutchinson as our new CEO, we are entering an exciting and transformational period in the long history of BOSS and our support for members of our trade. It is a real privilege and an honour to be asked to chair the federation and I relish the opportunity to work with Amy to help BOSS continue to objectively champion all sectors of our rapidly changing industry. I’ve had relevant recent involvement on the BOSS board and understand both the opportunities and challenges in front of us.”
