Our East Sheen Ward Team for this year's Borough Elections is Cllr Robert Thompson (left), Cllr Brian Marcel (centre) and Seamus Joyce (right)
Brian Marcel - has lived in East Sheen for 35 years and is the current Champion of the Older Resident and Lead member on Adult Services, which is responsible for 57% of the Council’s budget. His goal is to keep older residents at home as long as possible in family care and connect them to the internet via iPads. He is also Digital Champion and has written the Digital Strategy for the Borough to bring Wi-Fi and a happier citizen experience, with plans to create a Smart City for Richmond and Wandsworth.
In his ‘spare time’ Brian runs a mobile computing Company with 180 employees out in former Eastern Bloc countries, which he started in 1989 just before the fall of the Berlin Wall. He is most proud of his award in recognition of outstanding contributions that have furthered the growth of the barcode industry. Brian was a Magistrate and had to retire at 70 thus freeing up time to be a Councillor. He loves to help young people and mentors several in their businesses. Brian was educated at Stowe School and started his first job as a stockbroker. He is a passionate cyclist, skis and plays golf as well as bridge to keep him from developing dementia in his old age! He has just written a book on how to start and run a small business with the background of his experiences in barcodes.
