Steve is a property developer working on major developments in London and joined Round Table in 2013.
As Chairman, Steve represents Great Dunmow & District Round Table and sets the targets for the year. He also chairs our business meetings which are all prompt and well organised, as well as fun.
A large part of the role is also cultivating a team spirit and ensuring that all Tablers know their responsibilities and are pulling their weight.
Vice Chairman – Irenee Van Den Ende
Irenee is a bank clerk in London and originally reigns from South Africa. His favourite saying is “How would like your money” Irenee joined Round Table in 2013.
As VC, Irenee’s primary task is standing in for his Chairman in his absence, but the role also involves preparation for the coming year to ensure we have continuity.
The Vice Chairman will also be planning what he is going to try to achieve next year when he finally has his electronic tag removed.
Secretary – Daniel Albon
Daniel is tall, likes rules and is rubbish at golf but we still love him.
As Secretary Daniel ensures that meetings are run correctly and in accordance with the rules of the association. Daniel also assists the Chairman before, during and following meetings by preparing agendas, recording minutes and circulating the taken minutes.
Treasurer – Tobias West
Tobias is our very own in-house Chris Evans look-a-like. Toby lives in Dunmow, has three beautiful children and a wife and owns a successful electrical business. Toby joined Round Table in 1873 BC. He can’t ski.
Our Treasurer is responsible for advising the Table on all matters of finance and providing up to date information when requested.
Counts and banks monies when collected, arranges for floats when required, produces proper audited accounts for the Table AGM and is prepared to answer questions on these.
Membership Secretary – Jon Shepherd
Jon is a physiotherapist from Dunmow and has been a member of Great Dunmow & District Round Table since 2011. He was also our Chairman last year when he got us riding our bikes around the Olympic Velodrome.
As Membership Secretary, Jon is responsible for liaising with prospective members and providing advice to those who wish to get involved. He will also liaise with Table Council and Members to put forward new members.
Media & PR – Jordan Bright
Jordan is a very, very, very handsome man who is responsible for updating the website. He is truly perfect in every way and joined Round Table in 2017. He is occasionally a bit deluded as well.
As our media and PR guru, Jordan is responsible for maximising the media coverage of the Table by helping to inform people of our Fund-raising events and social functions through the press and social media. He would love to join in more but is restricted by his 9pm bedtime enforced by his Mum.
