Stephanie McIntosh

Stephanie has been appointed by the Secretary of State for Justice as a Parole Board member and is an independent chair and panellist for the Judicial Appointments Commission. She is vice chair of the Costs Lawyer Standards Board and sits as a lay member for the Bar Tribunals and Adjudication Service.

Stephanie has many years of senior leadership experience in local government and non-governmental public bodies in sport and justice. In those roles she has had responsibility for strategic direction, corporate governance, finance and risk management. She sits on committees with remits to promote high professional standards and promulgate learning, and to provide independent scrutiny and quality assurance. She has significant experience in selection, training and accreditation of professional roles.

Stephanie completed her MBA part time whilst working full time and some 17 years later studied full time whilst working part time to attain an academic solicitor qualification. She decided not to go into legal practice but remained within the criminal justice sector.

Stephanie spent every available moment as a child at the local riding school, learning how to ride and care for ponies before progressing to having her own, which she has continued to do since.  She spent time in America on the event yard of a veteran Olympian and had experience of competition at the top level.  She has worked in funding for equine veterinary research and education within the horserace industry, gaining insight into the sport and the value added to it by the profession.
