Barry Le Grys MBE has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Motability with immediate effect.
Barry stepped down from his role as a Governor of Motability, having joined the Board in 2017, in order to assume this role.
Previously, Barry was the Chief Executive at the charity Blesma, a post he had held for the past five years. Blesma is a service charity that has specialised on assisting veterans overcome limb loss and loss of use since the end of World War One. Motability took on the responsibility from Blesma to provide vehicles to ex-service veterans back in 1983; a responsibility we still have today.
Barry has had a distinguished military career serving our country and has also held a number of important roles in both public service and the charity sector. He was awarded an MBE in 1995 for outstanding leadership in 3 Commando Brigade, Royal Marines and promoted to Brigadier in 2003.
Barry said “I am privileged to join Motability at such an exciting time and am looking forward to building up the expertise of the Charity and working with this great endeavour.”
