MARK DRUMMOND
FINANCE

 Born in Aberdeen, studied in Edinburgh, qualified in England, married into Glasgow.  

 

As my finance career has bounced me across various organisations and around the country, I have sought out community sport and exercise everywhere I lived for health, happiness and friendships.  As a jack of all sports and master of none, I am most energized and enthused in the multi-discipline setting.  And it was a work opportunity at Glasgow 2014 (as well as persuasive qualities of my now wife) that drew me to Glasgow in 2012.  As an East-coaster my first 30-years, I am now a committed convert to the unique qualities, spirit and values of Glasgow and its people.

 

While by day I lead the Finance team at GCU, I love to explore the art-splashed streets and open spaces of Glasgow thereafter.  I was delighted to join the Board of Movement Park in late 2017, to provide my professional finance assistance in guiding and growing the charity.  And ever since joining, I am continually inspired by the passion, dedication, care, ambition and impact of the team in promoting physical activity and serving its communities.

JO BUTTERFIELD MBE
INDEPENDANT DIRECTOR

I am a full-time athlete, classified as an F51 international seated thrower (club and discus), and a member of the Forth Valley Flyers Athletics Club. I previously was a Civil Servant, working with the MOD. In 2011, I was left paralysed from the chest down after spinal cord injury and turned to sport initially for rehab – and soon discovered it offered so much more. Having only been competing in athletics since 201, I have won multiple world and European medals, and my greatest achievement to date is winning Gold at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio. After that, I was awarded an MBE in 2017 for my services to field athletics. 

PAMELA DEWAR
INDEPENDANT DIRECTOR

I am a specialist in developing the people that play sports and physical activity happen. I am passionate about getting children, young people, and adults into the sporting pathway so they can enjoy the multiple health, social and personal benefits it brings, and I facilitate this through the learning and development of the people that make sport happen. What drives me is seeing the difference to individuals, communities and society that activity and sport can make, ensuring equality of access and quality, enjoyable opportunities for all. My passion is built on 18 years professional experience in sport and community development, including roles within local authorities , sports councils, and national public sector agencies, alongside over 23 years as a sports volunteer. Working within Movement Park allows me to support a much-needed approach to community rebuild by using the power of sport and movement, and supporting the individuals and communities in the west end of Glasgow.
