As you may be aware, Ian Lawry has stepped down as Sobus CEO to pursue a new and exciting business opportunity closer to his home in Oxfordshire.  Ian achieved a great deal at Sobus, including delivering two fantastic Hubs at Dawes Road and Freston Road, and his enthusiasm and professionalism will be very much missed.

However, we are delighted to report that Sue Spiller has been appointed as the new CEO and will be joining Sobus from early March.  Many of you may remember Sue from her previous role as Head of Community Investment for LBHF, and she comes to Sobus with a wide range of experience and knowledge about the sector in the borough.  Sue told us, “I’m really excited to be joining Sobus, an organisation that I have known and admired for many years, and the opportunity to work with voluntary and community organisations in the borough who do such fantastic work to support our local residents.” 

If you would like to get in touch with Sue, please contact her at:
