Since 31 January 2018, the sole trustee of the Thalidomide Trust has been ‘Thalidomide Trust Company’. The individuals who served as charity trustees before that date now serve as the directors of the trustee company. However, we continue to refer them as trustees internally for continuity and because their role within the Trust remains unchanged. Our current trustees are:
Mark Benstead B.A, M.B.A
Trustee since May 2015
Senior fixed income fund manager at Legal and General Investment Management.
John H Howard
Trustee since December 2009
A non-executive director of the Financial Ombudsman Service, National Counties Building Society, and the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority (OFGEM).
