Andrew Marran

Role: Non-executive Director

What I do

As a non-executive member of the Board I provide scrutiny, challenge and support to the executive Directors and hope to help in applying my specialist skills and experience to improve the quality and effectiveness of our services for service users and carers. All non-executive Directors are involved in holding the executive part of the board to account for the successful delivery of the organisations strategic aims and objectives and we are ourselves accountable to the Council of Governors who hold us to account for our role in doing this.

How I contribute to improving the experience of service users and carers

An Institute of Directors qualified Director, my skills and expertise lie in leading sustainable growth in organisations, helping to develop long term, sustainable partnerships and commercial relationships with other organisations; in particular establishing high quality, successful growth opportunities in the healthcare sector.

My experience

I am a Mental Health Act Manager and non-executive board Director on a range of university spin out and subsidiary companies at Leeds Beckett University. I also manage a team of Business Development Managers who support the transfer of University ideas and research into tackling real world problems and innovations. I have 12 years experience as a corporate management consultant and am currently the Chairman of Leeds Student Residences – a charity established to help students in accommodation hardship.
