Mount Kelly is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Kevin Wilson as the new Chair of Governors for the School. As Chair elect, Dr Wilson will join the Board of Governors as Vice-Chair this September for a year before taking over the helm in September 2018 when the current Chair, Rear Admiral Chris Snow, completes his tenure.
Dr Wilson has a strong pedigree for this position. He has had a career in financial services, having held senior positions at Citigroup, its legacy companies and S.G. Warburg & Co, leading teams providing equity research in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and healthcare to institutional investors globally. He has also worked in investment banking and private equity. He now runs his own consultancy business together with his wife from their Devon home having moved here from London in 2011. He has held a number of Board positions at companies related to his work.
Dr Wilson has always had a keen interest in engaging in the education voluntary sector and has over 9 years’ cumulative experience in various governorships. He has been a Governor and Vice-Chair of The Highfield School, Letchworth, and most recently has been a Governor and Chair at Tavistock College, where he led the Board through the College’s recent turnaround process. His independent sector experience comes as a parent: his daughter was a pupil at St. Christopher School in Letchworth.
Head Master, Mark Semmence writes: ‘This has been an extraordinary first three years in the life of the School, but the success of the merger (Kelly College and Mount House) in 2014 and the enormous success enjoyed by Mount Kelly since that time would not have been possible were it not for the vision and extraordinary commitment of our Chair of Governors, Rear Admiral Chris Snow. The appointment of Dr Wilson is excellent news and I look forward very much to working with him in the coming years.’Categories: Archive News Blog School News
