Changes at top of Citizens Advice
Jonathan Dell is taking over as chairman, having been the charity’s treasurer for over four years.
‘I’m now looking forward to working with the Citizens Advice team and management committee, as chairman, in the years to come,’ he said.
‘We have 23 volunteer advisers offering free advice on a range of matters. I’m so proud of their hard work and dedication to providing such a valuable service to the Guernsey community.’
Mr Dell is replacing Mark Helyar.
Deputy Helyar, the current Policy & Resources treasury lead, remains on the committee but has stepped down due to work commitments and to aid his recovery from recent surgery.
The interim CEO is Annie Ashmead, who started at Citizens Advice in 2020 as a volunteer adviser before becoming deputy CEO.
‘I am delighted to have been given this opportunity to lead the charity and to take an active role in helping shape Citizens Advice’s future, she said.
‘I know what an incredible job the volunteers and staff do and what a great service they provide for the community.
‘This year we have helped over 3,600 clients on a wide range of issues including, financial, consumer and health.
‘I’m also really looking forward to continuing working with Kerry Ciotti, who was CEO for three years, as she moves to a new role to head up the team of advisers.’
