Smart Works Newcastle Appoints New Corporate Relationships and Fundraising Trustee

Smart Works Newcastle are delighted to announce Maxine Fox as their newest Trustee, specialising in ‘Corporate Relationships and Fundraising’.

Maxine has worked in corporate finance since settling in the North East over 20 years ago. This has given her significant experience in supporting organisations across all sizes and sectors, to achieve their long-term ambitions of growth.

In her current role as Head of Business Operations for a Newcastle-based corporate finance firm, she is responsible for all operational aspects of the organisation.

This ranges from securing and maintaining relationships with clients and networks to ensuring regulatory compliance is maintained.

She is immensely proud of the far-reaching network of women she has developed over the years and is a strong voice for supporting resilience and empowerment for all.

Outside of work, she enjoys running and spending time with her family. She and her husband own a Delorean, so she can sometimes be found at classic car shows answering questions about time travel!
