Barry Wallis

Both my late father and uncle served in the RAF during WW2 and together with stories of their experiences they have inspired my interest in this subject. Now I have retired, I would like to think that many of the skills that I have gained during my career are transferable and can be put to good use to the benefit of the IBCC. Prior to my retirement last year, I was a successful senior executive with significant retail experience gained from appointments in Operations, Marketing and Trading functions, at Head Office and store level in a career spanning nearly 40 years. I was also privileged to be a volunteer non-executive Director of St Andrews Hospice in Grimsby for over 11 years to 2016 and was Chair of the Support Services & also Income Generation and Marketing functions during this period.
