Sir Guy Weston

Honorary Fellow

After taking his degree in Law at Merton, Guy Weston (1978) read for the Bar before deciding to complete an MBA at INSEAD. Following this, he took up a career in investment banking, before moving to become Managing Director of Jacksons of Piccadilly and The Ryvita Company at Associated British Foods plc from 1990 until 2000.

Sir Guy has been a trustee at the Garfield Weston Foundation for 35 years and its chairman for 20. His leadership has been critical to the strategic direction of the Foundation, which has become the largest family grant-making charity in the UK and has enabled other British charities, large and small, to develop strategies and launch major appeals.
