George Ringrow, CEO Hampshire

St John Ambulance in Hampshire has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer to lead its ambulance work, medical cover and 1,100 volunteers in the county.

Wealth of experience

George Ringrow, a former Training Programme Director for the leadership development group Common Purpose, brings with him a wealth of volunteering experience and a network of contacts from across the county.

Before joining Common Purpose in 2005, George spent more than 20 years in business as a qualified engineer and Managing Director.

I want to make a difference to people’s lives.

‘I want to make a difference to people’s lives,’ he said.

‘St John Ambulance takes someone from the community and trains them so they can go back and serve that community. It’s about as good as it gets and I consider myself very fortunate to be here!’’

George moved to Hampshire in 2005 and is Churchwarden at Holy Trinity Fareham and a member of the Diocesan Synod.

St John Ambulance has more than 1,000 members across Hampshire who last year treated around 1,700 casualties and gave more than 226,000 hours in voluntary service.

Volunteers can work as either first aiders or in support roles at public events throughout the year.

Pat Morris, Commander of St John Ambulance in Hampshire, welcomed George to the organisation: ‘We really value his management and volunteering experience and look forward to working with him in the years ahead!’
