Mr John Riby
I was born in Scarborough and both my children attend Scalby School. I have now lived the majority of my adult life in the area. I am a graduate in Civil Engineering and a Chartered Civil Engineer by profession culminating in becoming a Fellow of The Institution of Civil Engineers.
I have worked in the private and public sectors on major projects and became a Chief Officer in Local Government representing not only my own Council but others at a local, regional and national level on a variety of aspects of municipal issues. I was lead officer on the Local Government Association’s Special Interest Group on coastal matters for several years which helped to influence Central Government in developing national policies and strategies. I have been the author of several professional papers dealing with a variety of coastal issues.
Latterly, I have been the President of The Rotary Club of Scarborough and hope my experience in senior management will assist the Trust Board going forward.
