  • A Message from the Master- Appointment of Clerk

    A Message from the Master- Appointment of Clerk

    I am delighted to advise the Livery that the Company has appointed a new Clerk.

    Following a selection process and interviews, Adrian Mumford MA, MMus, FCIS, ARCM, FLCM has been appointed as our next Clerk. Adrian has accepted the appointment and will take up his appointment on 2 January 2019.

    Adrian's home is in Teddington and his early career included internal auditing and project accountant roles. Between 1997 and 2017 he was Chief Executive (Diocesan Secretary) of the Church of England's Diocese in Europe. This involved heading a small Westminster office which provided a range of high-quality services to support the operation and governance of the diocese. In his spare time, Adrian is a church organist and he is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians.

    I am very pleased with the outcome of the recruitment process and look forward to seeing Adrian taking up the reins as Clerk. The Company is extremely grateful to Air Commodore Paul Nash, who kindly came out of retirement to assist us in the interim (and will continue to do so for a transitionary period).

    Robert D Burgon,
    Master
