Mick Smith

Managing Director

I joined the organisation as a volunteer in 1993. I became a Director in 2007 and last year took over the leadership of the company. I've a BA (Hons) in Urban Development and a MA in Social Enterprise Management to complement my practical experience of running a community interest company.

What I do at Newground

As Managing Director I makes sure the organisation runs effectively, delivering professional services and projects which meet the needs of our  wide range of stakeholders.

In my spare time

My family love outdoor activities, especially canoeing. I help out coaching at my local canoe club so I spend a fair bit of time outdoors paddling.
