The Aston Martin Heritage Trust announces new trustees

AMHT new trustees Tamalie Newbery and Steve Waddingham

The Aston Martin Heritage Trust (AMHT) has appointed two new trustees in its 25th year. 

Tamalie Newbery, Director and CEO of Brooklands Museum, and Steve Waddingham, the AMHT Historian, join the Board of Trustees for the charity that boasts the world’s largest collection of Aston Martin records. 

On the new additions to the team, John Warden, Chair of the AMHT said, “In order to continue the AMHT’s growth, we must bring in experts to guide us, challenge us and share their wisdom. Therefore, I’m delighted Tamalie and Steve have joined us. With Tamalie and Steve’s experience and passion, as well as the dedication of the other outstanding board members, the future of the AMHT looks bright.”

Tamalie commented, “It’s an honour to have been asked to join the AMHT’s Board. I’m looking forward to working with everyone.”

Steve added, “When shared, heritage turns into passion. The AMHT is the leading authority on Aston Martin’s heritage so if you are interested in the iconic British marque, our expert team will explore the archive to support you. It’s a privilege to be a Trustee.”

Tamalie and Steve join John Warden (Chair), August von Joest (Vice Chair), Garry Taylor (Hon. Treasurer), Tim Cottingham (Trustee), Mark Gauntlett (Trustee), Tom Westley (Trustee) and Michael Abbott (Trustee). 

Marek Reichman, the Executive Vice President & Chief Creative Officer at Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, has accepted an invitation to be on the new AMHT Council and therefore has stepped down as Trustee.
