The CIPR benevolent fund, iprovision, has appointed four new trustees as it looks to raise awareness of the range of support it is able to offer members with financial or health issues.

Awarded the Sir Stephen Tallents Medal in 2017, he has been a board level adviser on reputation and communications to a range of global brand names as well as to technology start-ups. Kevin is also active in mentoring young PR professionals.
  • Jenifer Stirton is a director of Stockbridge PR - a strategic communications consultancy, that she set up in May 2015 to offer board level advice and interim director support. Passionate about learning and education, she has worked as a communications director across a wide range of UK public sector organisations and is also a member of the CIPR Council.
  • Gary Taylor has worked in the public and education sectors for more than 30 years, and has held several volunteer roles including Leeds United/Leeds Carnegie Ladies FC and as a civilian instructor with 59 (Huddersfield) Squadron Air Training Corps.
