The Board and staff of the Clyde River Foundation are delighted to announce the appointment of Robert Kerr as Chairman.
Robert worked in environmental regulation for over 38 years, latterly as a Divisional Manager for both the Clyde River Purification Board and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency from its formation in 1996 (in the former West Region based in East Kilbride). During his career he was a member of a number of working groups including those developing the Metropolitan Glasgow Strategic Drainage Plan, river basin planning via the Clyde Area Advisory Group, Bathing Waters Improvement Group and dealing with pollution associated with abandoned coal mines in Scotland (jointly with the Coal Authority). In 2000 he became the Depute Environmental Improvement Manager in South West Area, which covered the Strathclyde and Dumfries and Galloway Regions. Robert was appointed SEPA Head of Operations in South West Scotland in 2005, a post from which he retired recently. Robert chaired the Clyde Fisheries Group, which provided a forum and link between angling interests, SEPA, Scottish Water and the Clyde River Foundation for many years. Robert brings with him a wealth of experience and we very much look forward to working with him.
