Tom Schuurman

Head of Finance and Resources
Tom leads our finance and resources department with a focus on developing efficient and effective systems to help Bioregional champion a better way to work and live.
Previously at the Institution of Structural Engineers, Tom has over 10 years’ experience working within the not-for-profit sector. He has always tried to use his professional qualifications to benefit communities.
 
Coming from a farming family and growing up on a smallholding in South Africa, the value of nature and caring for the environment were embedded in Tom from an early age. He is a great fan of researching new technologies and opportunities which could be of benefit to others. Recently, he encouraged his cousin to install solar panels on their fruit farm. The installation of solar panels has reduced their carbon footprint, by mainly using sustainable energy to power the cold storage facilities.
