He is accredited by the Society of Writers to HM Signet (the WS Society) in commercial litigation and also by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in insolvency law.
GTS chief executive Chris Thewlis said: “Steven is a great addition to the board at GTS offering further good governance and expertise as we work towards our growth strategies to increase income which maximises social value.”
Mr Jansch said: “Having a lawyer as a non-executive director is beneficial to GTS, to me personally, and to my firm, all at once.”
The expanded GTS board now comprises CEO Chris Thewlis, operations director Tracey Smith, Roger Horam, Brian Cameron and Stephen Paterson.
