He has played rugby and hockey and continues to enjoy cycling, swimming and music. He lives in north London with his wife Fiona and he has two daughters, Olivia and Victoria.
Mark Myers is a Cambridge educated, financial services professional with more than 30 years’ experience in shareholder owned and mutual organisations and he is currently Chief Executive of British Friendly. He is looking forward to joining the Board of Governors at King’s Ely, bringing with him substantial financial management and business expertise. His outside interests include classical music, dance, birdwatching and national hunt racing. He lives in Cambridgeshire with his wife Fiona, a school nurse, and he has two children, Alice and Philip, both in their twenties.
Chairman of the King’s Ely Board of Governors, Jeff Hayes, said: “I am truly delighted that the school has been able to attract the calibre of Graham Chase and Mark Myers as new Governors. They will both bring a wealth of experience to the Board in their specialist areas of expertise, and importantly add to the wealth of knowledge that the Board of Governors have to help and support the staff and students at the school. Graham and Mark will formally join the Board from the start of the 2015/16 academic year and I look forward to welcoming them on board. I would like to add that both outgoing Governors Anthony Morbey and Bruce Fraser made exceptional contributions to the School in their 10 years on the Board, and I would like to thank them for their outstanding commitment and dedication”.
