The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) has appointed two new trustees to help oversee the running of the organisation and ensure it meets its charitable objectives.
The first new trustee is marketing specialist Andrew Masheter who has more than 30 years’ experience in the not-for-profit and public sectors specialising in strategy, marketing, communications, commercial development and PR. Masheter has joined the JCCP to advise on its marketing and PR strategies and initiatives.
He said, “It is great to join a new organisation like the JCCP, which has a tremendous set of tasks to complete to raise the issues of standards, patient safety and protection in such a developing and fast-growing area as aesthetics.”
The second trustee to join is Victor Ktorakis, who has 14 years of experience as an environmental health officer (EHO) and is currently a senior EHO for the London borough of Enfield, with lead responsibility for Special Treatment Licensing. He joins as a non-voting trustee to advise the JCCP on how the rules, regulations and practises of EHOs can be upgraded and supported when looking at the licensing of premises where aesthetic treatments are taking place. According to the JCCP, this is a complex and developing area which it is looking at to enhance patient safety and protections.
Ktorakis said, “I am able to bring front-line experience of dealing with health and safety issues with aesthetic businesses and I am delighted to be working with the JCCP on new policies and regulation in this complex area.”
Professor David Sines, chair of the JCCP, concluded, “It is my great pleasure to welcome Andrew and Victor to the JCCP Board of Trustees. As the JCCP develops it neds to recruit to its Board of Trustees people with specialist knowledge and experience. Both Andrew and Victor fulfil that role and I look forward to working with them.”
