JOHN SYVRET, CBE – CHAIR
John Syvret CBE is Chair of our Youth Zone and it’s fitting that he was born and brought up in Birkenhead and now lives in Wirral with his wife Shirley and their three children. John has vast business experience and is currently Chief Executive of ship-building company Cammell Laird Ltd.
“Cammell Laird is located at the heart of our community and I am passionate about the welfare of all our constituents. As champion of The Hive (Wirral Youth Zone), and from working with the charity OnSide Youth Zones, I have seen the impact their facilities have on the towns and cities they are located in. Youth Zones are much more than just buildings. They represent an investment in young people, demonstrating a belief that they deserve the best opportunities we can offer them. They are driven by a unique partnership between young people, the local authority, private sector and of course the community. They are often a catalyst for partnership working, sometimes with spectacular results.”
