The Winch Employee Ownership Trust will be governed by a Board of Trustee Directors, whose role it is to represent Winch employees’ interests and to ensure high levels of employee engagement, which is crucial in a talent-based organisation. Winch Design is thrilled that the first Trustee Chair will be Patrick Lewis, former CFO of John Lewis and President of the Employee Ownership Association, and the first Independent Trustee will be Sue Lawrence, who has worked with several founders as they transition to an EOT and has extensive experience as a Non-Executive Director across various sectors.
