Agnes Leonard’s time as president has come to a close and she has handed the reins over to Ian Egerton who will lead the way as president of the NHF/NBF, following a three-year position as vice president.

Agnes Leonard comments “I’ve loved every minute of my time as president. It has been a great journey and a real learning curve. Ian is a real forward thinker and has been a huge support to me - I know he will do a great job and I wish him lots of luck for the future!”

Ian brings with him knowledge and experience learned first-hand from running his own successful hair, beauty and wellness business, the Stress Exchange for the past 17 years. He will be working closely with NHF/NBF chief executive Hilary Hall, the newly appointed vice president Steven Scarr and the Board to establish long term goals, strategies, plans and policies.

Ian comments “I have championed the NHF/NBF ever since I became a Member in 2002 so I couldn’t be prouder that I’m leading the way in supporting other business owners with building successful, professional and profitable business. It’s such an exciting time for the NHF/NBF especially as the NBF launched last year, so I can’t wait to see what the future has in store.”
