WAVE's Officers

The Officers of WAVE are typically volunteers who take on a role of responsibility within the organisation, out of their commitment to our mission. A number of people have held such positions in the past, then found that other demands on their time have not allowed them to continue. Past officers include:

Jan Arnow (Education Co-ordinator)
Jochen Bettgens-Gäng (Information Co-ordinator)
Catherine Briggs (Organisation Co-ordinator)
Karyl Chastain (Network Co-ordinator)
Paul Warner (Webmaster)
Valerie Halsey (Secretary)

Current Officers:

George Hosking, Research Co-ordinator

George is an economist, accountant, psychologist and clinical criminologist. He is also a trained traumatic stress counsellor. While his main employment is as a business strategy consultant and company doctor, he devotes much of his spare time to work on behalf of WAVE. He manages WAVE’s research programme and research library in Croydon.

George works with victims and perpetrators of violence, in prisons and in the community, delivering WAVE’s very successful "An End to Violence" programme.

Before focusing on social issues, George had a successful career in business, first as a senior line manager, then as a corporate turnaround specialist. He is now committed to translating his skills in these areas into effective action in the cause of understanding and alleviating violence.

George’s articles on the subject of violence may be found elsewhere on this web site.

Niall Hosking, Webmaster

A science graduate of Glasgow University, Niall was Science Faculty Convenor of the Student Representative Council and President & co-founder of Glasgow University Web Society. He is currently studying for an MSc in Information Technology at Paisley University. He has managed WAVE’s web site since 1998.

Anthoulla Koutsoudi, Secretary

A solicitor in a busy London practice, Anthoulla is a Greek Cypriot with a keen interest in family welfare. She is devoted to the goals of reducing both child abuse and domestic violence. She has been a member of WAVE since 1999, and Company Secretary since early 2001.
