Welcome to Syston Town Council ON-LINE
NEW SYSTON TOWN MANAGER
I have recently been appointed to the post of Syston Town Manager, and welcome this opportunity to introduce myself; my name is Catherine Voyce and I join you after spending eight years working as a Clerk to the Corporation at Loughborough College. I feel very privileged to be the Town Manager and guarantee that I will work to the best of my ability for the councillors and residents of Syston.
Originally from Rotherham in South Yorkshire, I moved to Leicester in 1988, and qualified with a degree in Business Studies from De Montfort University. since then I have achieved the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) certificate in FE Governance which I gained at Ashridge Business School in Hertfordshire and I also hold marketing certificates from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
I gained substantial marketing experience during my employment at Mettler Toledo Ltd ( subsidiary of Ciba Geigy) and also spent some time working in the Marketing Department at the Leicester Mercury.
Although not a resident of Syston, I am a regular visitor here as I really appreciate the diversity of the shops and eating outlets and know the town and its parks well.
I have a keen interest in environmental issues, enjoy gardening and am a regular theatre goer. I am quite a sporty person, having run two marathons and 100's of half marathons, but chronic injury has recently forced me to hang up my running shoes and switch to cycling. I love the countryside and escape there to enjoy long walks with my dogs.
My office base is at the Community Centre, School Street, Syston, LE7 1HN and can be contacted on 0116 2645972; mobile 07780005642; email Catherine@systontc.co.uk
