The TransWilts CIC is delighted to announce the appointment of Paddy Bradley as its new Chair.  He succeeds Paul Johnson, who retired last year.

Paddy, who turned 70 last month, brings a wealth of experience to the role.  He spent seven years as CEO at the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise partnership before standing down last summer.  Before that he had senior roles at Swindon Borough Council and Portsmouth City Council and spent 20 years in the education sector as a teacher, headteacher and inspector.   He lives in Salisbury and was appointed an MBE for services to the local economy in the 2023 New Year’s Honours List.


As he takes up his role Paddy said “I am delighted and honoured to take on the role of Chair of TransWilts.  I do appreciate the confidence the Directors have in me, and I will do my utmost to secure the further development of the organisation.


I would like to record my deep appreciation for the leadership of Paul Johnson, the previous Chair, who I did work with through my involvement with the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership.  The drive and ambition of members and the enthusiasm of Sophie Martin are great to see as an incoming Chair.“
