All of us here at ACD are ecstatic to announce David Dorward as our new head of board.

Mr Dorward has been a staple community member in Dundee, having worked in Scottish local government for 43 years, with all but 4 of these years in Dundee. His career ended as the Chief Executive of Dundee City Council in November 2014.

However, not the kind of person to become sedentary in retirement, in March 2015 was appointed as the Associate Director for the Rank Foundation place-based programme in Dundee. The Rank Foundation programme in Dundee is made up of 21 individual projects This includes the Time 2 Shine project that two of our members of staff are a part of.

His experience is invaluable to ACD as he has served as a director on a wide variety of companies while Chief Executive and, now retired, is a director or Trustee with 6 voluntary sector organisations.

We are very thankful to be able to have such a fantastic head of board here at ACD and we are excited to see what opportunities arise as a result.
