“Mike brings considerable experience from a series of senior financial roles in television as well as an understanding of charity law from his role as a director of the Sports Council Trust,” said Mike Darcey, Chair of the RTS Board of Trustees.
He added: “The RTS owes Grant a considerable debt of gratitude for the time and commitment he has given as Honorary Treasurer, overseeing and advising the board on the Society’s financial affairs. We will miss his wise counsel.”
Murray stepped down from the role after being appointed CFO of Johnson Press.
