Lynn Petersen was recently elected as chairman of The British Horse Society (BHS) following the decision of Dr Phil Wadey to step down as chairman due to the demands of new ventures at his satellite communications company.
For the past year and a half, Lynn has been the board trustee responsible for the Society’s modernisation programme. With her business experience as European Director for TIME magazine and Global Director for Kraft General Foods sponsorship of Women’s Tennis, she has brought a new dimension to the Society's plans for the future. Most recently as Director of Sales, Marketing and Fundraising for The Outward Bound Trust, Lynn worked closely with HRH Prince Andrew in transforming the charity with modern management strategies.
"Our volunteers and our members are at the centre of our work. The BHS is determined to serve professionals, owners, riders and enthusiasts with enhanced and relevant benefits for horse and rider.
“I am looking forward to serving as Chairman committed to developing a new chapter in the Society’s distinguished history."
Carole Broad remains as Vice-Chairman and is joined in this role by Claire Aldridge who has served the Society as a trustee and safety and welfare volunteer for a number of years.
