Cornerstone Charity Appoints Two New Board Members30 May 2019
As one of Scotland's largest charities and a leading provider of services for people with disabilities and other support needs, we are delighted to announce the appointment of two new board members, Geoff Huggins and Tony Dinozzi.
Chaired by Andrew Lockhart, the Cornerstone board ensures that the organisation’s strategy and policies are adhered to in line with our charitable purpose and in the best interests of stakeholders, and most importantly, the people we support.
Cornerstone CEO, Edel Harris, says, “I am delighted to welcome two new Board members to Cornerstone. Geoff brings many years’ experience of working in both the health service and in national government; his recent work leading on health and social care integration in Scotland is particularly valuable. Tony has a passion for fundraising and is a welcome addition to the Cornerstone Foundation committee.”
“As we continue with the implementation of our transformational strategy – Local Cornerstone – it is as important as ever to ensure good governance. At this exciting, and sometimes challenging time we welcome the fresh thinking both new members will bring to the table”.
About Geoff Huggins
Appointed Director of Health and Social Care Integration in April 2014, Geoff brings a wealth of experience to the board, having worked across a variety of roles covering housing and education policy in Scotland and politics and security with the Northern Ireland Office.
Geoff is looking forward to playing an active role on the Cornerstone board, and says, “In my time as Director for Health and Social Care Integration with responsibility for social care, I was consistently impressed by Cornerstone and its leadership in providing quality, person-focused care, and in continuing to innovate and challenge the traditional ways of doing things to produce better outcomes for people.”
About Tony Dinozzi
Chartered Accountant, Tony Dinozzi, also joins the Cornerstone board this month. Becoming Group Head of M&A at John Wood Group PLC in 2000, Tony has vast experience in fundraising and led Wood’s fundraising efforts for two great Aberdeen charities; the Archie Foundation and Maggie’s, where he raised almost £400,000. Tony is delighted to be joining the board and says, “I am greatly looking forward to the challenge of being on the board of Cornerstone. It’s a pleasure to be part of it.”
