Introducing the SPFL Trust's board of trustees

All charities are required to be led by a group of trustees. Our board play a vital part in the effective governance and fiduciary management of the SPFL Trust. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. In doing so, they are well equipped to support and advise our chief executive Nicky Reid, and her staff team. On this page you will find short biographies of each member of our board.
