SKI CLUB CHAIRMAN RESIGNS
16th January 2020

Malcolm Bentley has stepped down as the Club goes through what it calls ‘challenging’ times. Last year it made a loss of £840,000.
Malcolm Bentley has stepped down as chairman and as a member of the Club’s ruling council.
Trevor Campbell Davis has been appointed interim chairman.
Mr Campbell Davis is a long-time member of the Club and is honourary treasurer of the Alpine Club.
The Ski Club GB has recently made a substantial loss and has withdrawn its Leading Service.
Many long-time members are disappointed at the way the Club has been run in recent years.
The Club told members of the departure of Malcolm Bentley in a short statement.
It emphasised the appointment of the interim chairman rather than the departure of the old chairman.
“Members will be aware that the Club has encountered a number of challenges in the last year and Council and management have been re-assessing the strategy to restore the financial position and give a sustainable future.”
“A number of decisions have been made with much work still to be done but now is a good time to have an interim chairman as these decisions are implemented.”
“It also allows Council plenty of time to consider the options for a permanent chairman, who would normally be proposed to members at the AGM in November.”
Whoever takes on the role full time will have a mountain to climb as the Club tries to re-establish itself in a changing UK snowsports world and remain relevant.
Last July the Club appointed Ian Holt as its new CEO.
It followed the resignation of Darren Neylon who resigned in April 2019 after barely a year in the post.
