We welcome our newest Trustee – Raj Tugnet

We are delighted that Raj Tugnet has joined the Board of Trustees having recently been appointed by Members. Raj has been supporting the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee as a co-opted member since November.

Raj is a passionate advocate of education and the transformative effect it can have. He firmly believes in social responsibility and ‘giving back’ to society to enable a more enriching, stimulating and technology-led learning environment to ensure young people have the very best opportunity to develop their natural curiosity.

As the Director of Commercial & Strategic Partnerships for a global healthcare organisation, Raj is well placed to support the strategic development of Discovery. He also brings a valuable insight from a range of organisations including large multinational, smaller mid -sized to start up’s.

Raj currently supports two other schools as a local governor as well as acting as a charity Trustee for the Marlene Reid Community Charity in Coalville.

Raj Tugnet said of his new role:

I am very pleased to be appointed as a trustee. I am looking forward to playing a part in the Trust’s journey and working closely with my fellow trustees, advisory board members and Trust leadership team.

Richard Bettsworth, Chair of Trustees said:

We have a clear focus on strengthening and diversifying the membership of the board. I am thrilled that Raj Tugnet will be adding his experience and expertise to that of the current members to support the continued development and growth of Discovery.
