Barry Thompson


Barry has gained experience as an accountant across a number of sectors including private sector consultancy, local government and housing.  His most recent experience has been in housing where he has held two Finance director level roles over a period of 21 years.  His areas of expertise and knowledge include, business planning, accounting and control, risk and risk management and audit and governance as well as strategic management.  He has also gained experience as a board member of two separate housing associations including chairing committees and the board of the association.  As well as the traditional accounting roles Barry is also very interested in people management and led an association to achieve number 11 in the Sunday Times best company list.

I think it is crucially important that CYM is able to continue to offer high quality courses to equip people to provide Christian mission and ministry for young people, families and communities.  This has become even more important as we recover from the effects of the Corona virus. The college is working hard to adapt to new ways of working to support students safely and effectively in their studies.
