Tracey is a Yorkshire lass through and through... born, raised, educated and worked in God's own County!
After spending almost 40 years in the banking and finance industry, sunnier climes beckoned.
She moved to Benahavis in 2020 and quickly became involved in the Arts Society, starting out as a visitor, moving on to become Committee Secretary and now beginning her adventure as Chairman.
Peter was born in Glasgow and later lived in North Berwick, Edinburgh. He moved to London to work in Investment Banking and continued to work in this industry in New York, Chicago and San Francisco, culminating as Treasurer for 8 years in Tokyo, Japan.
He moved to Benahavis in 2000 where he worked for the town hall as ‘Concejal Delegado de Extranjeria’ from 2011 until retirement in 2019. Recently married, he now enjoys retired life, keeping fit, walking the dog and socialising.
Mike Page Treasurer
Mike was born in Sussex and grew up on the South Coast of England. He studied Chemical Engineering at London University. In his career he has been primarily involved in Project Management working with major international oil & gas companies, spending over half of his working life outside the United Kingdom. In retirement Mike, and his wife Zaria, spent a number of years visiting parts of the world they didn’t know, but for the last five years they have been settled in Southern Spain. Mike will bring much needed clarity, simplicity and understanding of the Arts Society Benahavis accounts.
