Notcutts Group Ltd has today announced the appointment of Bridget McIntyre as Non- Executive Director and Chair Designate with effect from 1st January 2020. Bridget will replace outgoing Chairman, Nicky Dulieu, with effect from 1st March 2020.
Bridget currently sits on the Boards of Adnams and Jarrolds, both family businesses with a significant retail component. After an extremely successful executive career working in a variety of industries, from publishing to car manufacturing culminating in financial services with Aviva and RSA Insurance, Bridget stepped back from London and committed herself to Suffolk.
In 2009, Bridget set up the award-winning social enterprise Dream On, an innovative business model which funds access programmes to support women’s development, funded through corporate coaching and a clothes shop. This subsequently led to the creation of the Blossom Charity to support Dream On in 2014 and most recently Mission Possible which supports men to be their very best too.
Bridget has also been appointed High Sheriff of Suffolk from April 2020 - April 2021.
