Public Concern at Work (PCaW) have appointed two new Trustees to its Board bringing expertise from the finance and media industries.

Karen Jordan is a Board-level regulatory expert with management experience both in the UK and internationally. She is a whistleblower protection champion with extensive investigations, enforcement and remediation experience in the financial services industry and a consulting/audit background. On taking up the Trustee post, Karen said, “I am thrilled to join PCaW after being one of its supporters for more than 20 years. I have seen first-hand how organisations can benefit from encouraging their employees to speak up when they have concerns.”

Alexander Gardiner is an experienced senior leader in television production and as Managing Director of a £35m turnover TV production company Shiver, a part of ITV Studios, led the restructure of the organisation and across three sites in London, Leeds and Manchester. He has overseen much of ITV’s current affairs output, including the Exposure on Jimmy Savile and the first UK election Leaders’ Debate in 2010. Alex said, “Dynamic and vibrant business needs a culture of openness, which is where whistle-blowing can play such a vital role. I’ve always admired the serious approach of PCaW and am delighted to be joining them.”

PCaW Chief Executive, Francesca West said, "I look forward to working with Karen and Alex and their input will be fantastic for PCaW. We are very grateful to have them join us."

Chairman of PCaW, Paul Boyle, said, “I am delighted to welcome aboard Karen and Alex who will be fantastic additions to the Board and their knowledge and expertise will be invaluable to PCaW in such a momentous year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary.”
