New Trustees

Abdul Iqbal

General Profile

I started my career in the financial services working in the Finance function of the UK offices of a large international bank. I currently work for a large telecommunication company based out of its offices in London.

Skills Profile

Personal Profile

I enjoy reading and playing cricket for the local town team. My family are members of the English Heritage and my wife and two children enjoy days out at various historic buildings and ruins of English castles.

Philip Bruce

General Profile

I have just retired after a varied 35-year career with Lloyds Banking Group, mainly in the Commercial Bank. I have extensive business integration, operating model and systems change experience, which I gained in a number of senior leadership roles.

Skills Profile

I am also a Non-Executive Director of Swan Credit Union covering Milton Keynes, Aylesbury, Thame and Didcot, which aims to provide affordable financial products to those who may be excluded from mainstream financial services.

Personal Profile

My wife, Alison, is a director of a local business, and we have one daughter, Anna, who has recently started University studying Dietetics.

I enjoy travelling, sport (especially cricket), gardening and travel. I am relishing the freedom and sense of liberation that comes from escaping the daily rat race of commuting and working.

Rosalind Parke


General Profile

I began my career in Research and Development (R&D) in the oil and gas sector due to my love of chemistry. However, I chose to move into the associated commercial field, which subsequently led me into mainstream management consulting. I now operate as an independent business consultant for commercial and business transformation.

Skills Profile

Personal Profile

I’ve maximised the opportunity for walking and peak climbing on my travels, sometimes throwing a mountain bike into the mix – I do my best thinking at the top of a mountain. I have two active teenage sons and I am heavily into cricket and rugby, which I passionately support as I once passionately rowed.

With personal experience of depression and the associated impact, I am keen to broaden the public discussion on mental health, both within the workplace and schools. I see early intervention with regards to school age children as a priority.
