Eddie Baker FCA FCMA is a qualified Chartered Accountant, with a main interest in Industrial and Commercial Management and Information Systems. He started his career at small local paper and packing firm, which then became his only employment. It grew to a major UK & European Paper & Packaging company, and he was promoted firstly to Director and then to Group Financial Director, from which position he organised its acquisition from the American owners on behalf of the UK Board. Subsequently the company was bought out by a UK company, and Eddie decided to retire.

 

Eddie first became aware of the scope and depth of Cam Sight’s support for people low vision and blindness through his long term interest in cycling when he joined the tandem cycling team. By serving on the Board of Trustees he hopes to be able to repay some of the benefits that he has received, utilising the knowledge and experience gained during his career for the benefit of other people living with low vision and blindness.
