Congratulations to Graham Bell OBE!
Graham is receiving the OBE in recognition of his leadership in developing, supporting and promoting social enterprise.
The 64-year-old, who was last year appointed to the Board of Cove Burgh Hall, was CEO at the Kibble Group, based in Paisley, for 24 years, leading its growth from a small local organisation to one of the country’s major social enterprises.
The charity has since gained international recognition as Scotland’s specialist centre for young people at risk, offering a range of services to children with complex social, emotional and educational needs.
Graham, who is also a qualified social worker, is now a founding director of The Leader (Scotland), which supports new or experienced leaders with their personal or business growth.
On the Board of Cove Burgh Hall, Graham is responsible for fund-raising.
Sheena Edwards, Secretary to the Board, has also been given an award. She received the British Empire Medal in 2014 for services to Girl Guides and to the community in Kilcreggan.
