Trustees

The following are our trustees here at Megan Baker House:

 

 

Richard Wileman - Chairman

 

 

Richard is currently the Director of International Business Development for ISR and Space Systems within UTC Aerospace Systems. Richard is married to Rebecca and they have two grown up children, Freya and James, and lives just north of the city of Hereford.  When not abroad on work he normally travels into Malvern where the Company have offices.  He has worked in the area of defence for most of his adult life, including a period in the Territorial Army where he held a commission with the Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers.Before working for UTC Aerospace systems he has worked for a number of different companies ranging from long range Research and Development through to delivery of systems into operations. 

 

As a child Richard suffered from Dyslexia (which was only just being recognised at that time) which meant that he was unable to read until he was 10 years old.  Fortunately he has a stubborn streak and, with a lot of support, he achieved a BSc in Physics and PhD in Materials Engineering from the University of Birmingham, as well as an MBA from the London Business School.  Stubborn not academic!

I am a school master at Moor Park, Ludlow. I specialize in Geography and Religious studies and am also a houseparent in our junior boarding house. After reading Geography at Oxford Brookes I did a P.G.C.E. with the Marches consortium in Herefordshire teaching in several local schools. 

I have worked with various charitable organizations in the past both raising funds and coordinating projects in the UK and overseas. 

I am delighted to be a trustee of MBH and very much look forward to helping in its continued growth.
