New faces at Community Savings as founder departs

Tuesday 19 July 2022


Community Savings has appointed a new Non-Executive Chair, Executive Officer and Ambassador.

Paul Brookes will lead the Board of Directors, taking over from founder and outgoing Executive Chairman, Brian Curtis MBE, who is leaving the charity after 25 years’ service.

“Brian has delivered so much to Community Savings and whilst we are sorry to say goodbye to him as Chairman, he will remain involved as our Life President in recognition of his long service and contribution to the charity,” Mr Brookes said.

“He leaves behind an amazing legacy, and whilst they are large shoes to fill, I am really excited about the opportunity to take the charity forward. As the cost-of-living increases around the globe, more people than ever are likely to find themselves facing financial difficulties and it is crucial that we are available to help those in need, whatever their circumstances.”

On the Administration Team, Stuart Butler will be stepping into the role of Executive Officer.

The relaxation of covid rules means that the charity has been able to restart its financial education programme in schools, with Charlotte Angell having joined the team earlier this year and having already completed several presentations.

Crime author and Jersey resident Peter James, meanwhile, is now an ambassador for the organization and has offered signed copies of his latest book for auction.
