Charity, Notts County Foundation has appointed Sam Sharp to its board of trustees.
Quoting a passion for wanting to positively impact his local community, Sam, who is currently a senior associate at local full-service law firm Browne Jacobson LLP, completed his undergraduate degree in law at Lancaster University before returning to Nottingham to attend law school.
Sam has since become a corporate solicitor, primarily focussing on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance transactions, and company reorganisations, as well as governance and general company law advice.
Sam said: “I am delighted to have joined Notts County Foundation’s board of trustees at what is a really exciting period of growth for the charity. I am a regular squash player at the Portland Centre and having been a Notts County Football Club supporter since the age of eight, I have always been aware of the great work that Notts County Foundation carries out across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, which ultimately made it an easy decision to make when the opportunity arose.”
Dianne Jackson, chair of trustees at Notts County Foundation, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Sam to our board of trustees. It goes without saying, but Sam’s legal expertise and knowledge will be fundamental to the development of the charity throughout 2022, especially in relation to our commitment to providing equal opportunities for everyone within our local community. I am very much looking forward to working alongside Sam and formally welcoming him to Notts County Foundation.”
Sam Sharp added: “I can’t wait to get started with Notts County Foundation and am looking forward to utilising my experience to contribute towards the charity achieving its objective of improving the health and wellbeing of local people through increased levels of physical activity.”
