Meet our CEO - Tracey McCillen
I joined MKHP at the end of January 2020, and following a transition phase took over the role on 1st April. I’m an experienced CEO, with over 25 years in national and international sport and disability. (Activity to Paralympic sport).
I’m an experienced Chair and Trustee with an active portfolio here in the UK and overseas and have led organisations through governance change. I read law at the University of London and am a qualified Barrister. Other current roles include Tactic Connect (Associate Consultant), the CRISTAL programme at De Montford University (Visiting Fellow), and a DMU External Examiner for a number of law and sport based degree modules. Equality, equity and diversity drive my approach as does giving a platform to those that ordinarily struggle to have their voices heard. I encourage change through collaborative approaches and finding proportionate and practical solutions.
Other experiences include working in the commercial sector in advertising, property and media. I’m a passionate advocate for disability equality and rights, good governance and enabling people to succeed. My interests include swimming, Gaelic hurling, reading, performing (vocalist), politics and Egyptology. I am delighted to take on this role and look forward to working with you to achieve real and lasting change with, and for, the people of Milton Keynes.
