Jonathan Trower, a trustee of the charity for a year, has taken over from acting chairman Rob Forsyth.

Mr Trower, managing director at DC Advisory and owner with his wife of a small farming business on the Herts/Essex border, is also involved with a number of other local charities and was High Sheriff of Hertfordshire in 2015.

He said: “I am honoured and suitably humbled to be taking on this role. I know how much the people of Essex and Hertfordshire care about their air ambulance. I will do everything in my power to ensure this charity continues to serve the needs of our two counties.

“I would like to thank Rob, on all our behalves, for everything that he has achieved as acting chairman over the last few years. I am more than a little daunted as I step into his shoes.

“I am immensely looking forward to working with chief executive Jane Gurney and her team.”

Mr Forsyth remains a trustee at the charity.

Mrs Gurney said: “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to the board. He brings with him a wealth of experience and a true passion for the communities of Essex and Hertfordshire.

“His knowledge, together with his previous work with other charities, will guide us towards our next exciting chapter. I am personally looking forward to working alongside Jonathan in helping to make Essex & Herts Air Ambulance stronger than ever before.”
