Welcoming a new Trustee

News

We are delighted to confirm Andrew Hutton has agreed to join our Board of Trustees. He will take the place previously held by Ian Peacock who has stood down after more than 14 years on the Board. 

We take this opportunity to thank Ian for giving so generously of his time, advice and guidance during his tenure as Trustee of the PHG Foundation

Ron Zimmern, Chair of the Board of Trustees and Founder of the PHG Foundation said:

'Ian has been an invaluable source of advice to me personally and to the Board since the inception of the PHG Foundation.  He will be very much missed not just by the Trustees but by many who have worked with him at the Foundation.  I thank him personally for all his contributions. 

'We have been very fortunate to have secured Andrew Hutton as Ian’s replacement.  Andrew is a graduate of Cambridge and, as a member of various College financial committees, he is well versed in the workings of the University. He will bring to the PHG Foundation a wealth of business and financial acumen gathered from over 40 years in the investment management industry.'

Andrew Hutton is Director of A.J. Hutton Ltd, an independent investment advisory practice. Prior to forming his own business in 2007, Andrew spent 28 years in the investment management industry with J.P. Morgan, Coutts and RBS.  Andrew is currently a member of the Governing Body of the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine, a Director of The Brunner Investment Trust and sits on the investment committees at Magdalene and Newnham Colleges in Cambridge and at the Royal College of Music.

Andrew said: 'If ever there was a perfect time for science, technology and public health policy to come together, this is it.  I’m delighted to join the Board and support the PHG Foundation as it facilitates that fusion.'
