He comes to the role following seven years as Bursar to a number of large independent school charities, and prior to that, a successful military career.

Mike will take up the role of Director, taking up the work of John Stones, who leaves the position after leading the Trust for the past ten years.

“Whilst not directly from an agricultural background, I have held a lifelong interest in the countryside, and agriculture at large, and feel I can bring relevant management and strategic planning skills to the role,” says Mike.

“I very much look forward to making a contribution to Nuffield; an organisation that provides such important travel and study opportunities to individuals, and that has a proven record in developing leaders in the farming and rural industries,” he adds.

Nuffield chairman Stephen Watkins expressed his delight at welcoming Mike, who will formally take up the post on 1 January 2013.
