Team NEN member Colchester Business Enterprise Agency (COLBEA) has announced the appointment of Sian Taylor of Birkett Long to its Board of Directors.
Sian, who specialises in commercial property law and represents the commercial real estate team for Birkett Long’s Health & Social Care team, will not only represent Birkett Long but also add further expertise to the Colbea board which already encompasses a wealth of cross-sector experience from some of the area’s most community-conscious organisations.
Birkett Long, a long-term sponsor of Colbea, has long been dedicated to supporting local charities and organisations, and since 2002 has helped contribute in excess of £450,000 to various charitable causes. Sian is a keen supporter of local charity events herself, most recently including the Mersea Walk for Samaritans and the Nuclear Mud Race for St Luke’s Hospice.
Speaking about her new position, Sian says, “I am thrilled to become a member of the Colbea board and am really looking forward to using my knowledge and experience to add value to the company.”
Ashleigh Seymour-Rutherford, Colbea Chief Executive, says, “I am delighted to be able to welcome to the board somebody of Sian’s undoubted dedication and passion for local commerce, while also building on Colbea’s long connection with an important local organisation.”
