Mary Williams OBE
Chief executive officer
Mary founded Brake in 1995 to stop road crashes and provide help to the victims. She says: “The difference now is that so many more people understand the carnage must end, victims must be cared for, and are working together for the changes we need. I’m proud to lead Team Brake: our dedicated staff and volunteers, and so many people who support our cause in work places, emergency services and communities. Road safety affects everyone.”
Chief operating officer
Ross joined the charity in 2017 and is Brake’s chief operating officer, with responsibility for the day-to-day leadership and administration of the charity’s operations. Outside of work, Ross is a keen road cyclist and runner, and he is passionate about road safety and reducing road deaths and injuries.
