Syed is a retired scientist who has worked in a UK based high-tech power reactor design and construction company for over 30 years. He’s also a long-standing resident of south Manchester (over 30 years in West Didsbury).
After serving as a Public Governor at UHSM for eight years, Syed was re-elected as a Public Governor at the newly formed MFT, serving until 2019.
