Wikimedia UK is pleased to announce the co-option of Greyham Dawes to our Board of Trustees. He has also been appointed Treasurer.

Greyham is a professional financial adviser specialising in regulatory compliance, charity governance and restructuring and public accountability, drawing on extensive knowledge and experience gained as head of accountancy policy at the Charity Commission in the nineties. He provides pro bono advice in these areas to the charity sector generally, serves on a number of standing committees for best practice in charity financial reporting and is well known for his books, essays and lectures on that topic.

He is a chartered accountant, an independent member of the audit committee at SCOPE, chair of the finance & audit committee as a non-executive director of the British School of Osteopathy and hon. treasurer of the Association of Church Accountants and Treasurers.

Greyham said: “I’m delighted to be able to help take such a rapidly developing charity to the next level in all aspects of best practice as it continues to serve the Public Benefit needs of its beneficiaries within the Wikipedia and wider open-access communities.”

Chris Keating, Chair of Wikimedia UK, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Greyham to the Board, and I am sure his experience will be immensely valuable to us.”

Greyham’s term on the board will run until WMUK’s Annual General Meeting on 8 June 2013.
