Coming originally from an audit and finance background, Joe has a keen professional and practical interest in the corporate governance and leadership of public sector bodies. He served as an elected member of a local authority for eleven years (Halton Borough Council) during which time he chaired the council's Audit Committee and led a review of the corporate complaints process. He has also been a governor of two primary schools.
