Edward is a Chartered Accountant and is now semi-retired, having stood down in 2015 from his role as Global Director of Finance and IT at the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investments (CISI) in the City of London, where he had been for five years. He joined CET as a trustee in June 2018 because he is “excited to be part of a charity with a long history of developing people’s commercial skills and helping them to fulfil their true potential”.
Previously, he build an internet-based company that he co-founded in the USA and UK. His early career was in the accountancy profession (latterly with Nevill Russell, now know as Mazars), which he left to become finance director of a major group of Lloyd’s Insurance underwriting agencies.
Edward is also a trustee of National Numeracy, The Wheatsheaf Trust, and The David Lewis Association.
