We are delighted to announce that, following a rigorous 2-day process against a large and very strong field, we have appointed Mr Hugh Maltby (73-83) to succeed Richard Garrett as the Director of the Bedford School Association and to serve, accordingly, on the Core Management Team. Hugh, a former Governor of the School, an Old Bedfordian and a current (and past) parent, has had a distinguished city career across 30 years in the insurance industry. As Director of Operations, he is currently a member of the Markel International Board, which is responsible for an annual turnover of over $1.3bn. As such, Hugh takes charge of global operational services across North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Closer to home, and far more stressfully, he has run the Bedford Regatta for the past decade! His interests include rowing, triathlon, rugby and cycling, in the first two of which he has competed at national and international level. Only last year, in conjunction with a number of OBs, he cycled the 990 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 9 days.

We look forward to him joining us later in the summer.
