Erkin Guney, chairman of the Board of Trustees
Through his father Ramadan Guney, businessman Erkin Guney has been involved with the mosque since he was a child. Previously a director at Brookwood Cemetery, Mr Guney has extensive experience as a funeral director, a role he has continued at Masjid Ramadan since becoming a member of the Board of Trustees in 2012. He became Acting Chair in 2017 and was appointed chairman a year later. Since then, he has sought to widen the mosque’s engagement with the local community and to complete the building’s much-needed renovations.
