The Mount Stuart Trust is pleased to announce the appointment of Colin Boag CB CBE as Managing Director.

Reporting to the Board of Trustees, Colin will be responsible for the day to day management of the Trust at all levels as well as working with the board on the development of a longer term strategy for the future.
