THE new principal and chief executive of Milton Keynes College is also a director of an established family engineering company.

The college says Dr Julie Mills, pictured, who succeeded Rob Badcock earlier this year, keeps close to the needs of business and the role of skills development in contributing to economic prosperity.

Dr Mills joined the college in 1990 as a lecturer in finance and has been deputy principal for the last five years.

When not at the College, Dr Mills can be found roaring the MK Dons forward at stadium:MK and supporting national and local charities including the Helena Kennedy Foundation.
