Brad Roynon (Chair)
Brad has worked in the NHS and in local government, having been Chief Executive of three Councils, including Southampton City Council, over a period of 22 years. Over this time the importance of culture being at the heart of communities, to support social and economic wellbeing, has been of increasing significance.
After leaving Southampton City Council, Brad was a Non Executive Director on an NHS Trust and then Chaired the successful City Centre Business Improvement District project. Since May 2017 Brad has taken on the role of Chair of the Southampton Cultural Trust, which reflected his personal enthusiasm to help culture in Southampton become central to City life and to see new audiences being attracted to its expanding cultural offer.
