RCO Chairman of Trustees David Saint said: “We are delighted to welcome Mark to the board of the Royal College of Organists.

“Over the last couple of years we have sought to strengthen the breadth and depth of our board with the appointment of trustees who offer a wide range of technical and commercial skills alongside their abilities and enthusiasms as musicians.

“I have absolutely no doubt that Mark’s expertise and experience in a number of key areas, including the law, will be invaluable as we continue to develop and improve the College.”

Mark added: “A love of the organ and its repertoire has been central to my musical life, so I am delighted to accept the College’s invitation to join them as a Trustee.

“As a Trustee I offer my broader professional skills. I look forward to contributing to the growth and renewal that has been such a distinctive feature of the College’s recent development."
