TrustMark appoints new chair


TrustMark has appointed Chris Pond as chair to its Board, taking up the role with immediate effect, succeeding Lynn Hugo who is reverting to a non-executive board director role.

Chris brings a wealth of experience, insight and expertise gained across numerous ministerial, chair, CEO and director roles in government and the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Chris said: “I am honoured to be joining TrustMark at such a pivotal time in the organisation’s journey. The UK faces some real challenges in delivering quality over the coming years – progression towards net zero, an ageing housing stock and energy price rises adding to the cost of living crisis.

“The best and quickest way to help families reduce their energy costs is through improved energy efficiency. I believe TrustMark’s role is central to meeting some of these key challenges.

“The work already being done by the team in the areas of quality assurance, raising standards and consumer protection is laying strong foundations. We will continue to build on this by working in partnership with our Scheme Providers, businesses, consumer groups and policymakers.”

Lynn Hugo commented: “I have seen TrustMark’s growth escalate over the last 18-24 months, and I know Chris is ideally placed to enable that journey to successfully continue. I look forward to working with him on TrustMark’s continuing journey.”
