Seckford Foundation appoints David Grant as new Governor
The Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment as a governor and as chairman of the Finance committee Mr David Grant, to succeed John Carrington, who stood down last month after seven years as a governor and the past two years as Finance Committee chairman.
David trained as a chartered accountant, subsequently becoming a merchant banker with Guinness Mahon & Co, where he covered a full spectrum of activities, specialising in project finance to developing countries. In 1978 he moved into the commercial vehicle sector, first on the finance side and subsequently in general management. In the early 1980s he founded Orwell Trucks which, as majority shareholder and managing director he built up to become one of the leading Mercedes Benz truck and van distributors in the UK with branches across East Anglia. He sold the business in 2013, remaining as chairman until earlier this year.
