York Professionals appoint new directors

Membership and networking organisation York Professionals has appointed five new directors to the board.

Torque Law partner Emma Whiting and St Leonard’s Hospice director of income generation Dawn Clements join as board directors alongside Arden Matheson director Holly Arden, The Soapy Group director Sophie Metcalfe, and Dale Bartleson, director of sales at York’s newly launched radio station, YO1 Radio.

The new appointments come as York Professionals marks its 20th anniversary and embarks on a new hybrid events programme, following the success of its first face to face events in almost two years. The group’s Summer Social in August attracted over 60 people, and more than 140 people gathered at York Racecourse last month for a dinner to mark 20 years of York Professionals.

Vice Chair Elliot Rich, pictured at the annual dinner with the new board directors, says, “It’s fantastic to welcome so many new faces to the board as we launch our programme of member support into 2022. York Professionals has grown to over 120 members in the last 18 months, a testament to the strength of community, engagement, and mutual support among businesses in the city. Strengthening the board of directors across the sectors we serve will help us make sure our support remains focused and relevant to professional services providers in York.”
