Trustees Of The Iveagh Trust

The Trust has been governed by a distinguished and experienced Board of Trustees since its foundation in 1890. Today, most Trustees are retired, having had long and successful careers in a variety of sectors such as business, accountancy, property and law. This ensures that there is an extensive range of skills and experience on the Board. The connection with the Founders’ family has remained constant over the years and currently there are four members of the Guinness family, including the current Lord Iveagh, serving as Trustees.
