Watters has served on the AsureQuality board for over three years, and as deputy chair for the past 18 months.

I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the AsureQuality board and to work with management to ensure the continued success of AsureQuality,” said Watters.

She is appointed for three years from 1 November 2019, when current Chair Janine Smith retires after nine years of service.
