Move On’s Directors
Our Board of Directors give their time and expertise on a voluntary basis, and meet regularly to oversee Move On’s operations and strategic direction.
Ash Mohammed joined the Board in September 2017. He currently heads up the Risk team that oversees Payments across Royal Bank of Scotland both in the UK and Internationally. Having worked in banking for over 10 years, Ash has wide ranging experience from commercial product management to managing large change programmes across a complex bank. He is also an E-Spark mentor, supporting businesses in their first steps to establishing themselves.
Martin, a Chartered Accountant, joined the Move On Board in May 2017. He has over 30 years’ commercial experience across the construction, oil & gas, distribution and retail sectors and has filled the Finance Director role in a number of corporate structures. For more than two decades he headed the finance function at Fairhurst which, through a combination of organic growth and acquisitions, has become the largest consulting engineering partnership in the UK. Having retired from the position of Financial Partner in 2016, he has since been fulfilling an invitation from the Fairhurst Board to remain in a consultancy role.
Director of Student Systems and Administration at the University of Edinburgh, I am an experienced manager with more than ten years’ experience combined across business process improvement, software innovation and development, network infrastructure and project management. I have worked in both public sector and financial services before finding a passion for Education within FE and now HE.
My expertise has led me to specialise in innovative developments to support the student experience which have been recognised by Scottish Government, Funding Council, Jisc and UCISA. My combination of technology, social and digital skills coupled with effective communication builds positive relationships enabling me to lead and motivate teams to successfully meet strategic objectives.
