Ann Green receives CBE in Queen’s Birthday Honours List - Tuesday, 15 June 2010
Lieutenant-General Jonathon Riley, Director General and Master of the Royal Armouries, has led the tributes to Ann Green after she was appointed a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List on Saturday (June 12).
A prominent Yorkshire businesswoman, Ann has been a trustee of the Royal Armouries since 1998 and Chairman since April 2003. She is also a Non-Executive Director of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport.
Jonathon paid tribute to Ann on behalf of the Royal Armouries’ Board of Trustees, directors, and staff, after she was honoured “for services to museums”.
Jonathan said, “This is a very well deserved award and recognises Ann’s considerable experience and drive, highly-effective business and communications skills, and dedication and tireless commitment to preserving our national heritage.”
A former Director of the Northern Stock Exchange and, subsequently, Northern England Director of The Industrial Society, Ann has held non-executive directorships in engineering and pharmaceutical manufacturing businesses.
As a result of her wide experience of the public, private and voluntary sectors, Ann was appointed a non-executive director of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport in May 2009. Other current directorships include Stagg Security Services Ltd, Triangle Multi-Media Ltd, Eezycash Ltd and the Heritage Education Trust. She is also Chairman of Hadrian’s Wall Heritage Ltd, a private company formed two years ago to improve the visitor experience and help regenerate the Hadrian’s Wall corridor.
With an extensive interest in the USA and Canada, Ann is a member of the board of the Frazier International History Museum in Louisville, Kentucky and has been honoured both as a Kentucky Colonel and with the freedom of the city of Louisville.
