Governor Profiles

Nick Stafford

Founder and senior partner of Hambleton Ales, Melmerby, Ripon in 1991 and remains a small family run business dedicated to local and Yorkshire communities; from 2002 Operations Director of the Society of Independent Brewers, a national trade association of British independent craft breweries; governor of Thirsk School and Sixth Form College since April 2015.

Brian Metcalfe

Recently retired, I have spent over forty years as a Charted Engineer in the nuclear and chemical industries. I have spent most of my career in senior leadership roles driving continuous improvement in the performance of major organisations. For many years I have been focussed on individual development and helping people to reach their full potential.

Sue Adsett

I am a retired Lead Adviser for School Improvement. Prior to joining North Yorkshire County Council, I was Headteacher of a primary school for ten years in a neighbouring local authority; the school achieved “Beacon” status for leadership and achievement. I am Vice Chair of Governors at a primary school which has been through a similar experience to Northallerton School and Sixth Form College. I currently volunteer with Citizens Advice, leading two outreach sessions in the Hambleton area. More locally, I have been a Parish Councillor on Romanby Parish Council for the last three years. I am a member of a local Rotary Club which supports several local activities for young people attending this school.

Tom Riordan

Since 2010 Tom has overseen £300m of efficiencies across Leeds City Council and £3.9bn of investment in Leeds. Flagship developments include Victoria Gate, First Direct Arena and Trinity Leeds, with a further £7.35bn of projects in the pipeline. Plans are set to double the size and economic impact of the city centre through regeneration of the South Bank, developing the Innovation District and connecting HS2 to a redesigned station. Tom’s top priority is for the city’s growth to be inclusive and felt across Leeds.

Tom has also since 2010 overseen £145million of efficiency savings, pioneer status for the city's health and social care work, transformation of the council’s Children’s Services to the praise of Ofsted, and helping secure the Tour de France Grand Départ in 2014.

After winning MJ’s Council of the Year 2016, this year sees Leeds hosting the World Triathlon Series and Tour de Yorkshire. Ever forward-looking, sights are now on celebrating the diversity of culture in the city, culminating in a year-long celebration in 2023. For his commitment to the region, Tom was awarded Yorkshire Man of the Year 2017. He is also a trustee on the Centre for Cities Board, and the Council's mental health champion.
