Patrick Forbes’ role as Financial Director for Euromate / Clean Air Group in South Africa exposed him to the governance operating model of the organisation through his provision of a very strict corporate governance structure whilst restructuring the organisation. As a Board member of PYReco Ltd, Mr Forbes was involved in setting the governance framework for the organisation, and the difficult task of balancing all the stakeholders interest, whilst setting the framework to move the organisation to the international marketplace.
It was Mr Forbes work that initiated the movement of the holding company, out of the United Kingdom and into a country less susceptible to the risks associated with BREXIT, allowing it to target the international market, whilst still acting in the interest of its stakeholders through its governance structure. This reflects substantial experience in economic development.
Mr Forbes holds an Honours Bachelor of Accounting and a Bachelor of Financial Accounting.
