As previously communicated, the EBED Board of Trustees, last week appointed Lee Guy as the new Chair of English Bridge Education & Development.
Lee takes over from Andy Margetts, whose term as Chair of the Board has come to an end. During his three-year tenure as Chair, EBED has grown from strength to strength, with an almost complete overhaul of staff bringing more bridge expertise into the team and the launch of English Bridge School, an online platform dedicated to the teaching and the learning of the game. Under Andy’s leadership EBED has also successfully weathered the storm of the pandemic and is ready to navigate the post-Covid bridge world.
Lee, together with the Board of Trustees and EBED team will be leveraging his experience of strategy and change management to develop more bridge teachers, tournament directors and ultimately, bridge players. This will support the mission to increase the number of and lower the average age of bridge players and bridge club participants. Lee Guy commented “working with the EBU and the whole bridge community I am sure this strategy will help to sustain and grow the game of bridge which we all love”.
