Meet our Governors
Fahad Sayood - Co-opted Governor
Fahad is Head of Aviva’s Financial Risk team, which ensure our customers can feel confident that Aviva is financially robust and resilient to whatever investment markets throw at us. Aviva’s c.£400bn asset base means getting it right is critical to survival and a fundamental pillar to our growth plans. At Aviva, Fahad has worked across the Capital, ALM and Risk space, establishing the Group’s £10bn hedging programmes and Derivatives Centre of Expertise, instituting the Group’s first Stress & Scenario testing framework, as well as being a founding virtual member of Aviva Ventures – our start-up incubator. Prior to joining Aviva, Fahad was a derivatives trader at Citigroup, undertaking proprietary equity derivatives trading as well as providing risk management and investment solutions to Citi’s client base. He also interned at Psion, a producer of iPads before the world eventually realised the need for iPads.
Beyond work, he is the father of two young children who are fast becoming better at the whole parenting thing than him. He has much to learn and they are always ready to remind him where he’s going wrong. Fahad holds an MSc (hons) in Actuarial Finance as well as a BSc in Mathematics both from Imperial College.
Anusha Somaskanthan - Co-opted Governor
I live locally in Ruislip with my husband and toddler, and we make good use of the local infrastructure which supports children at the very first stages of their life (e.g. children's centre, libraries). I have always been passionate about education as a foundation for success and I'm really happy to be involved with a school in my local community.
Carole Millard - Staff Governor
I wanted to become a governor at Bourne because, as an experienced governor, I recognise the importance of governance. I am particularly interested in ensuring that the link between governors and staff is a positive one.
Nimeo Mohamud - Co-opted Governor
Tracy Manners - Parent Governor
Cyril Brites - Parent Governor
Food has been at the centre of my life for as long as I can remember. I am a foodie and have been working in the food industry for over 20 years as an entrepreneur, consultant and manager. I am passionate about sustainability which includes not only protecting and rewilding our environment but also, a fairer society and racial justice. I have been striving in the last three years to bring my passion for food and sustainability together.
I live in Ruislip and I am delighted to be a governor at my daughter's school. What is important to me is to be supportive of the headteacher, the staff, the children and the community as a whole. I hope to bring my business skills and my ambition for the school as a parent to the governing board.
