Club President 2015 - 2016Rotarian Alan Gibson took over as President of the Rotary Club of Basingstoke Deane in July 2016 from Paul Temple.
2016-17 President Alan Gibson, together with his wife Lindy, receives his chain of office from outgoing President Paul Temple.
Alan has lived in the Basingstoke area for most of his life and is married with two grown-up children and two grandchildren.
After working for a car dealer group as Group Sales Director he started his own business in 1996 which expanded to have dealerships in Basingstoke, the Isle of Wight and Newbury with a total of seven franchises. In addition to Rotary his company was a regular contributor to The Pelican Cancer Foundation and other local charities.
He joined Basingstoke Deane Rotary Club in January 1998 as he felt it was an ideal way to promote his newly formed business and to enable him to support both local and international charities.
During his time with the club he has held a number of offices, with many years being spent on international projects.
Following the sale of his company in 2013 Alan took early retirement which has enabled him to expand the time he can spend on Rotary and take on the role of club President for 2016-17.
