PUBLISHED: 12:55 21 January 2014 | UPDATED: 12:55 21 January 2014

The Gloucester-based Furniture Recycling Project (FRP) has welcomed a new Trustee to help in supporting its work within the Community.

Dr Mark Loon, currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Worcester, was previously with the University of Gloucestershire, as a Course Leader for both the university’s CMS DMS and undergraduate Business Management courses. Prior to joining academia, Mark has worked with some of the most recognised multinationals in the world, specialising in HR and process transformation.

With 9 years of experience in management consulting, Mark has worked with Ernst & Young, Cap Gemini and KPMG, specialising in Business Process and HR Transformation projects, and as an independent management consultant and business analyst. His public sector clients included the Prime Minister’s Department of Malaysia, the Ministry of Finance of Indonesia, the New South Wales State Government and the University of Sydney. Mark was also a business owner of an enterprise specialising in Adventure Tourism.

Ian Ellis, Chief Executive of FRP said: “We are extremely pleased to have someone of the caliber of Mark join the Board of FRP. I met Mark when he was at the University of Gloucestershire and was immediately struck by his depth of knowledge and I am pleased he is able to bring his skills to help develop our services for the community. We would welcome to hear from individuals with specialist skills who may also be in a position to help contribute to our development. We are especially seeking individuals with finance, education and HR knowledge to complement our current Board”.
