“I started with a career in brand marketing with Unilever but switched, after a spell doing organisational consulting with non-profits, to the study of Organisational Psychology at LSE. Many years on the trustee board of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (and other non-profit boards) led to my trusteeship of Arcangelo, including 10 years as Chair. An amateur musician myself, it has been the greatest privilege to spend time helping extraordinary musicians make their ambitions happen.”

“I trained to be a professional musician, studying piano at the Royal College of Music. Instead I pursued a career in finance and my current role is Head of Business Management, Culture and Engagement at Rothschild & Co Wealth Management. Being on the board of Arcangelo gives me the opportunity to support some of our best musicians continue to make top class music.”

My career has been in private equity with a particular interest in impact investing (achieving social and/or environmental impact as well as profit). I am currently focusing on climate related investments in sub-Saharan Africa. Music has always been part of my life. I was a Choral Scholar and continue to perform as an amateur musician. I love baroque music and it is a pleasure and a privilege to be a Trustee of Arcangelo.

“I am a maritime lawyer practising in London and Hamburg. Having grown up in a vicarage in Northern Germany, the music of Bach, Buxtehude and Schütz has always been part of my life. However, I had to find Arcangelo in order truly to appreciate the beauty, delicacy, vibrancy and depth of this music. I am very proud to be supporting an ensemble of such geniality and quality.”

“I am the European director of finance and operations for Advent International, a global private equity firm. Having studied piano, pipe organ and harpsichord performance from an early age, I was fortunate to work as a professional musician for many years with a particular focus on Baroque repertoire.  Arcangelo is an exemplar of outstanding Baroque performance and it is a privilege to support its ongoing mission as a trustee.”
