UKTB Board Members


The UKTB is a not for profit organisation, made up of volunteers from within the UK.  The Directors work on a voluntary basis on the board. All are specialists, practitioners, consultants and trainers that have experience in software testing and quality assurance related positions.

The board represents a cross section of testing companies from the UK (large companies, smaller companies and training providers) where no more than 49% of the board can be selected from any one company.

Each board member has a set of defined responsibilities as shown in the image.
