Judy looks after a broad range of member relationships including trusts, foundations, organisations, families, individual donors, professional advisers, intermediaries and not-for-profit organisations.

Prior to, and whilst working in, philanthropy, Judy has implemented multiple IT change programmes to deliver operational efficiencies.
