Bethan Cullen

Operations Director
Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL)

Bethan has worked for the Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL) since 2010 and helped to transition the organisation from NASBM in November 2017. She has worked across several roles to help build ISBL as a nationally recognised professional body for the school business profession. Prior to this she held senior roles in marketing and operations in the commercial sector across B2B and B2C channels in varied sectors including automotive for Vauxhall, retail for PowerHouse and rewards for Smart Trade. Bethan’s passion for the education sector was sparked by her Mother, a head-teacher in Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, who shared insights on the development of schools’ autonomy and accountability. Bethan continues to engage directly with the sector through her governance role as a Chair of Governors and has undertaken this role since 2011.
