The appointments are part of Valleys to Coast’s move towards a skill-based board.

Jason Evans is a partner at Gambit Corporate Finance, a corporate finance advisory firm based in Cardiff. He also sits on the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Council for Wales.

Caroline Jones is an associate director at Savills as well as a chartered surveyor and RICS registered valuer.

The four new board members at Valleys to Coast are replacements for those who stepped down at the association’s AGM in September 2019.

Commenting on the appointment, Duncan Forbes, chief executive of Valleys to Coast, said:

‘I am thrilled to be welcoming all four of our new Board members to the team. They all bring a wealth of relevant experience and strong skills to help us continue being a successful organisation. They have strong empathy with our values and are committed to helping our customers live safely and happily in their own homes. I am looking forward to working closely with them all.’

‘On behalf of the Board, I would also like to thank Sarah Hay, Cheryl Tracey and Liam Bevan for their significant contribution to Valleys to Coast and invaluable support over the years – we wish them well for the future.’
