Capacitybuilders appoints new board members

Capacitybuilders has appointed five new board members, including former Big Lottery Fund chief executive Stephen Dunmore and Angela Sarkis, who recently resigned as national secretary of the YMCA, third sector minister Phil Hope has announced.

Also appointed were Sir Rodney Brooke, chair of the General Social Care Council, Anthony Freeling, director of the Ashridge Strategic Management Centre, and Olu Olasode, chief executive of consultancy TL First and a commissioner of the Social Care Inspection Commission.

Existing chair Chris Pond has been reappointed to the £18,000-a-year role, and four other board members – Caryl Agard, Margaret Bolton, Julia Kaufmann and Sir Roger Singleton – retain their positions at £300 a day. All the appointments will run until March 2011.

Sarkis, who is vice president of the African and Caribbean Evangelical Alliance, was given a pay-off of at least £40,000 and left the YMCA earlier this year just days before the organisation's former chair David Bedford also quit (16 April, page 1).

Dunmore has been working at the Office of the Third Sector as an adviser since leaving the Big Lottery Fund(Third Sector Online, 2 April).

Hope said the new members' experience would complement that of existing trustees. "I believe it will also enable Capacitybuilders to develop and enhance its vital role in strengthening third sector support providers," he said.
