Educated at Tiffin (1967 to 1974 – Deputy Head Boy, Captain of Rugby and Kingsley Montgomery House) and St. Edmund Hall, Oxford reading physics. The education I received at the School was a hugely positive influence in my life. My career was spent in the financial sector in London and 20 years abroad in Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and the USA working for a major US Bank and as co-founder and equity partner of a New York based structured asset finance firm. I joined the Governing Board in 2009 and am continually seeking to help enhance the School’s ability to provide both an outstanding academic education and a fantastic extra-curricular experience to all its students. I concurrently serve as Chair of the Governing Board and Chair of The Tiffin School Foundation, the registered charity which owns the School land in Kingston and to which parental and alumni donations are received. There has been tremendous change at the School. In strategic matters, as Chair, I worked with other governors on the academy conversion in 2011, the appointments of a new Headteacher in both 2014 and 2022, the change to a mixed 6th form in 2019 and more recently on securing the strategic future of Grist’s. I have been involved in the successful funding and construction of major site improvements including our new classroom, kitchen, and dining facility in 2018, the new gym extension in 2020, and the 2022 LRC infill project. It is an absolute privilege to serve as a governor of this great School.
I am Chair of the Governing Board, am a member of the Finance Committee, Education Committee and Admissions Committee and am a link governor for careers.
