Charles Packshaw, chairman

Taking up his first role at a health charity, Charles joined us at the end of 2016 after a career of over 30 years in the City with HSBC (where he was Head of UK Advisory when he retired) and Lazard.

He is currently the Chair at BMT Group, a leading international design and engineering consultancy and the Chair at Framlingham College, an independent school in Suffolk. He recently retired from the Board of Diploma plc, a FTSE-250 specialist industrial distribution business where he was Senior Independent Director.

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.
