The board of Trustees are extremely pleased to announce that Pat Burns MSc CEng MIET has now taken over as the new Chief Executive Officer of the association.
Pat retired from the Army in April 2013 after a 38 year career as a soldier and officer. Employed mostly in airborne and armoured units, he has a proven background in engineering and Logistics with first-hand operational experience. His last post was commanding an Army garrison in Cyprus where he was responsible for the welfare and housing of over 2,000 members of the military community. Pat enjoys shooting, music, reading, fly fishing, climbing, coaching kids’ and adult rugby, tennis and most importantly, family life.
Pat officially took over this role at the beginning of June just ahead of the opening of our new court, which meant his feet have hardly touched the ground since then. We wish Pat every success in his role with us.
