Dr Jerry Davies has been elected RCVS Treasurer and will serve on the Officer team for a three-year term. Dr Davies has been an RCVS Council member for five years, and currently chairs the Preliminary Investigation Committee.
Dr Davies (pictured) graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 1974. He then spent two years in the Department of Surgery as a House Surgeon. After a brief spell in general practice he returned to the RVC gaining a PhD and a DVR. He held the posts of Lecturer in Veterinary Radiology and then Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Surgery.

"My five years on PI Committee have been an enormous learning experience and I see my term as Treasurer as an opportunity to gain new skills. I know that the permanent staff in the College and the others in the Officer team will support me as I face these new challenges. It is a great privilege to have been elected Treasurer."
