Our longest-serving Trustee, Kingsley Riding-Felce, has decided to step down as from 8th December 2015 after 14 years service to the Aston Martin Heritage Trust. Kingsley has been an enormous force in the progress of both the Company and the Trust and we are most grateful to him for his valuable insights over the years as we have grown. We wish him well in his active retirement; he has generously offerred to continue to help us with his extensive knowledge of the heritage of AML by answering our archive photograph queries and other technical matters.
Replacing Kingsley as one of our Company nominees, we are delighted to welcome Simon Sproule, Director of Marketing and Communications for Aston Martin Lagonda, to the Board of Trustees. Simon joins us as from December 8th 2015. As our links to the Company strengthen, we look forward to working with Simon to further progress the Trust's work.
We have also welcomed Tony Morgan to the Trustees, as from September 2015. Tony has been of great help to us for over a year already concerning data protection and data transfer from the Owners Club for the Register of Aston Martin cars. Tony brings a wealth of business experience to help us in such matters.
Please join us to welcome Tony and Simon as Trustees.
