Chris Redding

PMZ Chair of Trustees

Operations Director, Peninsula Enterprises



What do you do for PMZ?
I am a trustee and will lend my hand to anything to help PMZ. I am also a school Governor for a local primary school so can bring that experience to my trustee role. As a former Operations Director and now CEO, my work experience is wide ranging so I can certainly assist with operational and other activities.

Do you play any instruments?
Unfortunately no but I did learn to play the recorder at primary school (too many years ago) and played a mean ‘Grand old Duke of York’. If I could learn an instrument it would be piano.

What musical instrument would best describe you and why?
The piano as it can be very grand but also very bold and funky as I adapt to whatever situation I am in.

What has music done for you in your life?
Music is a great pleasure and I love sentimental songs that I can relate to whether happy or sad. My husband loves music and is a very good singer. We have passed the love of music onto our children and grandchildren, it’s lovely to see that they have a wide taste in music and not just the latest music fad. My middle grandson is very much the performer musically and acting and I hope he will be using PMZ this year.

What’s the best bit about working at PMZ?
Seeing the multi-sensory room and what can be achieved really sells it for me. Watching the Christmas singing videos brought a tear to my eye.

What’s the first record/CD you ever bought?
It was the old vinyl LP of Tom Jones, Green Green Grass of home.
