Meet the Board

Hello to you all from Milan. I am British but have been living in Milan for over 20 years and for most of them I have been a member of the Benvenuto Club. Being a member has helped me find new friends and a new life in Italy, learn the language and understand the culture. I firmly believe that you should also give back to those that have helped you. I have previously held the posts of Secretary and Vice President and now I am privileged to take on the post of President. I am looking forward to providing a fun year for our existing members and to welcoming newcomers to the club.
