The directors, who all work on a voluntary basis, come from a variety of business, enterprise and education capacities and will use their expertise to help the club continually evolve while keeping its unique ethos alive. In partnership with the owner, Paul Jackson, the continued hard work of the club’s board of directors will be key to the Adelphi’s future success.
Tony Schultz, Group Chairman for the Strata Group and Adelphi director will be utilising his engineering expertise and contacts to allow the club to update its facilities.
Sally Currie, a qualified accountant with expert knowledge of the arts sector, is responsible for finance and governance as the club’s infrastructure is established.
Tony Clark comes to the board offering both strategic business and marketing point knowledge, as an Account Director of one of Yorkshire’s longest established marketing agencies; Sowden & Sowden.
Chris Dimmack brings top-level design and industry experience to the board as Head of the Hull School of Architecture and has worked behind the scenes at the Adelphi for 25 years. He will be integral to generating design proposals of future improvements to the club.
“The Adelphi and its ethos are not typical of any performance space in the UK,” said Paul Jackson. “We believe CIC status will give the Adelphi the opportunity to serve the community for a further 34 years and beyond, a legacy for the city of Hull. I would like to personally thank all of the directors for their hard work in making this vision a reality.”
