She must have upset someone. (Dr) Carol Bell is the candidate for non-executive BBC Board member for Wales turned down by the Welsh Government.
Carol is from Felindre, near Swansea, and went to Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera before studying Natural Sciences/Biochemistry at Girton College Cambridge. She says he first day at university was the first day in her life that she had only spoken English. She managed enough to join in at college tennis and cricket. From there to the oil and gas industry as a trainee with RTZ and on to investment banks with a specialisation in energy.
She took a break in 1999 to read for a PhD in the archaeology of ancient trade. She's now on boards a-go-go. She is a member of S4C's governing Authority, a trustee of the National Museum of Wales, a member of the Welsh Government's Sector Panel on Energy and Environment and a member of the board of Finance Wales. She's a non-executive director of Petroleum-Geo Services of Oslo; Ophir Energy; Tharisa, a South African platinum and chrome mine; and Blackrock Commodities Income Investment Trust. She has debenture seats at the Millenium Stadium - she's left, with (I think) her sister.
