JLC elects Mark Adlestone OBE,DL as new Trustee

The Jewish Leadership Council announces the appointment of Mr Mark Adlestone OBE DL as a Trustee to undertake a three year term.

Mr Adlestone brings with him a wealth of experience across a variety of issues that are at the core of the JLC’s strategic priorities. As Chair of The Fed in Manchester, his views and expertise will contribute to the JLC’s efforts to address the challenges facing the community’s care sector.

Mr Adlestone oversaw the merger between The Fed and Heathlands Village, and his input and guidance will enrich Chairman Jonathan Goldstein’s focus on ensuring the long-term financial sustainability of the community.

Bringing to bear his Manchester experience, Mr Adlestone will also help drive the JLC’s regional outreach, working with the External Affairs team and colleagues across the country to deliver for British Jews across the UK.

Jonathan Goldstein, Chair of the JLC, said, “I am delighted Mark has agreed to serve as a trustee. Over the years, Mark has made an invaluable contribution to the JLC membership and our entire community and I have no doubt he will continue to do so in his new role. Mark’s considerable business acumen and experience make him a valuable asset to the JLC.”

Mark Adlestone OBE, DL said "I am thrilled and honoured to have been selected by Jonathan Goldstein to become a Trustee of the JLC. Since joining as a Council Member nearly three years ago, I have developed a much greater appreciation and awareness of communal responsibility and hope that my Northern presence will offer a slightly different and broader perspective to my fellow Trustees.”

Following the Trustees elections in May, the Board of Trustees had the right to appoint one additional Trustee in accordance with the JLC’s Articles of Association. Jonathan Goldstein recommended Mr Adlestone’s appointment and the Trustees gave their unanimous consent.
