Partnership member director election 2017 – result


Bristol Green Capital Partnership members this month had the opportunity to vote for a new director to join BGCP CIC’s board for two years. The director role is important for helping to set Partnership priorities and maintaining links with our wider membership. Following a call-out for nominees, five people put themselves forward, submitting statements summarising their expertise and how they would work towards the Partnership’s success.

In order of total votes received, the results are:

  • Darren Hall – Pale Blue Dot 13
  • Alison Jennings – Bristol Water 12
  • Abduladir Ahmed Sheikhusein – Bristol Somali Forum 11
  • Philip Stott – YTKO 5
  • Pearl Costello – Costello Consulting/Royal Agricultural University 2

BGCP directors and staff team thank all the candidates who took part and all the member organisations that voted.

The BGCP CIC board extended a provisional invitation to Darren Hall (Pale Blue Dot) to become the next elected director on this basis, which he has accepted.

The CIC Board have agreed that BGCP CIC directors should not actively seek or hold political office. Darren Hall is a candidate in the West of England Metro Mayor election on 4 May, so this offer has been made subject to the outcome of that election.

If not elected as metro mayor, he will join the Board in May. If elected as metro mayor, Alison Jennings (Bristol Water) will be invited to become a director as the candidate with the second highest number of votes in the director election.

Note: Registered lead contacts for each Partnership member organisation were sent a link with which to cast their vote, with voting open 7-17 February. Some 43 member organisations voted. If your organisation did not receive a link, please let us know at, as we are keen to ensure our contact information is up to date for future events and elections.
