Charles Packshaw, chairman

Taking up his first role at a health charity, Charles joined us in 2016 after a career of over thirty years in the City with HSBC (where he was Head of UK Advisory when he retired) and Lazard.

He is currently the Senior Independent Director at Diploma plc, a supplier of specialist technical products and services, and Chair at BMT Group, a leading international design, engineering and risk management consultancy.

Charles is volunteering his time to lead the trustee board, using his experience to ensure the charity remains focused on its ambitious vision of a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.

His leadership and relationship management skills are being put to good use as the charity grows in order to achieve its aim of stopping prostate cancer being a killer and damaging bodies and lives.
