Denise McGarva Board Member

Denise retired early in 2019 following a long career in the financial services industry. She initially worked in retail banking prior to joining the private wealth management industry. The final years of her career were spent as Director of Investment Management, managing the relationships and assets of private clients, charities and pension funds.

When Denise retired she was keen to become involved with a charity whose values and objectives aligned with hers. She was impressed with the holistic approach taken by Community Renewal Trust. In particular, their support in helping communities address all aspects of poverty, including health, well-being and building a more optimistic and sustainable future.

It is about compassionate listening, creating stories, challenge and change
