Board of Directors

Mike Theodoulou

Mike’s career has been divided between the private, public and community sectors, starting at the London Stock Exchange and moving into Local Government where he worked for two London Authorities.   For a number of years he ran one of the largest Housing Associations in the UK during which time he introduced private finance and cutting edge solutions to combat homelessness.   He then moved on to be Managing Director of a large construction and development company, followed by a period as an executive director at Quality Street Ltd with accountability for a budget of £2.5bn.

More recently Mike led the Foothold Group, which developed into one of the largest social enterprises in Wales, as well filling a number of public roles.  He chaired the partnership Board which set up Finance Wales, the Welsh Development Bank; was the founding Chair of Chamber Wales; was a member of the committee which oversaw the Objective One EU programme in Wales, and chaired the monitoring sub-committee; and was a non-executive director for the Carmarthenshire NHS trust.

Today Mike is a Committee members for the BIG Lottery in Wales, a school Governor at Glan-y-mor School and an elected local councilor for Pembrey and Burry Port Town Council.

Janice Morgan

Janice Morgan has worked at CBSA since 2006.   She was director of new business development before taking on the role of Managing Director.  Prior to 1998, she worked in the North of England for a variety of private sector organisations which saw her working over a ten year period in Liverpool, Chester and Manchester.

Janice is the company secretary for CBSA, having responsibility for governance in addition to managing the organisation on a day to day basis.  A business graduate of the University of Wales and with an MA in Professional Practice, she has one daughter and a dog called Max, both of whom she has been known to describe as high maintenance.  

Her interests are politics and reading detective novels.

Gerald Davies

Gerald joined CBSA in 2005 and has undertaken a number of roles within the organisation before taking up his current position as head of New Business Development and training.

Before joining CBSA, Gerald’s work history demonstrated equally nomadic tendencies with time spent working for local government, the civil service, the voluntary sector, health services and, for a brief period, further education.

Despite this range of employers, a thread common to most of Gerald’s previous positions has been work with people experiencing disadvantage in one shape or another: predominantly unemployment and its consequences.  At the same time, this work has allowed Gerald to gain an understanding of the needs of business and employers as well as those seeking work.   Gerald has a MA in Democracy studies, as well as a teaching qualification. He is also an experienced researcher.  Collectively, this breadth of knowledge and experience provide a very important background to his current role.

Gerald’s interests include current affairs, music and reading.

James Lewis

James has a formidable list of achievements that have been built up from over 20 years’ experience in both the private and public sectors at a senior level.  He has set up companies in both the US and Europe and advised governments on a variety of health and social care issues.

He is the Chief Executive of Action4Elders, whilst continuing his work as a trustee to a select number of national charities,  He also continues to advise both the private and public sector on a variety of matters from strategy through to change management and marketing and PR.
