Kerry Agnew

Kerry Agnew
Membership Executive

Kerry joined ICB in January and supports the Membership Department to process applications and upgrades, and update the membership database.

Before joining ICB, Kerry worked in the NHS for 12 years, most recently as Medical PA to eight consultants.

'I left the NHS to progress my career. I'm enjoying the challenge of my work here and getting to grips with the different aspects of my role and routes to ICB membership. I've had some really nice conversations with ICB members who are accommodating when there's something I need to check with my colleagues!'


Ben Stephens-Brown

Ben Stephens-Brown
In-house Counsel

Ben joined ICB in October and works across the Professional Standards and Compliance departments producing regulatory guidance for members, as well as overseeing ICB's internal governance.

Immediately prior to joining ICB, Ben was working as a full-time Dad having given up his job as a Civil Litigation solicitor at GN Law, to be more involved in the lives of his young children.

'Law is great, but it's all-encompassing and the hours are not forgiving. My wife is also a solicitor, and we decided I would take a more active role with the children. At ICB I have found work that allows me to get home in time to bathe the kids, but also keeps me mentally stimulated! What's interesting about bookkeeping is the new regulations and changes that we must adopt and incorporate; what with digitalisation, GDPR and MLR2017.'
