Kishan Devani FRSA has been appointed a Liberal Democrat Party Treasurer's Envoy by the Treasurer of the Party, Lord Michael German. It is a great milestone for a party that is looking to widen its appeal amongst the BAME communities. Appointing Kishan Devani who up until recently was a former senior London Conservative (Deputy Chairman of the London Conservative Party & Parliamentary/GLA Candidate) & is a leading member of the BAME community is a clear intention by the Liberal Democrats to be a party that can cross political divides & backgrounds.
Lord German, the party's Treasurer, is looking to attract supporters from all diverse communities in the UK. He said '‘I have asked Kishan to be Treasurer’s Envoy to seek out new supporters on behalf of the Party’. Devani said 'I am honoured & privileged to have been asked by Lord German to be Treasurer's Envoy. Mike is someone who understands the needs of SME businesses which are the back bone of our country, his vision of reaching out to all is one to be highly commended. Sir Vince has also set out his vision of being the Party of Business at our spring conference. It makes me proud to be a part of a party that is outward looking & that is committed to reach out to the diverse communities we live in.'
