Executive Leadership

The Trust team is led by its Chief Executive, Susan Bell, supported by its Director of Finance and Operations, Sarah Chapman. Together they oversee the delivery of the agenda of the Trust as determined by its Directors. However, in keeping with our approach of partnership and co-operation, they are both assisted and supported in their work by the Executive Leadership Board, currently consisting of the two Heads, Val Wilson (Hetton Lyons) and Nicola Hair (East Herrington). This approach allows BLT to ensure that strategic decisions are both informed and implemented with the full backing of our senior leadership teams which ultimately must make things happen. Actions are effective and practical as a result. The following structural diagram sets out how this inclusive approach works.
