At The Leadership Trust, we’re proud of our committed and dedicated people. Here’s a brief introduction to some key members of the team.
Our Chief Executive
Rob joined us on 1st February from Goldman Sachs, and after 18 years service in the British Army where he served in a number of operational deployments, including most recently Afghanistan, and in a number of staff roles within the Ministry of Defence. Rob's interests include international affairs and travel, reading and the outdoors (whether mountain-biking, fly-fishing, natural history or walking Rupert the Springer Spaniel), although with two daughters under 6 years he seems to have little time for any of these hobbies.
