Changes have been afoot at TRIC HQ, with Chair, Jane Ostler’s two year term has now ended, Daniel Todaro, CEO of Gekko has stepped up to take the reins to lead as Chair out of the choppy waters that Jane fearlessly navigated the Club through.

New sectors targeted

“My goal is to lead TRIC into new and exciting sectors, strengthening our relationships with supportive partners such as Sky, Sony, Roberts, Samsung and GB News to name but a few and attract new complimentary industry brands that value aligning themselves with TRIC to support good causes. ”
