After 15 years as a partner at international law firm Lovells, John spent 10 years as a member of the executive committee of SABMiller, where he latterly led the group’s corporate affairs function, including its globally recognised sustainable development commitments. He was also a non-executive director on several associated and joint venture companies and is currently a trustee of a number of charitable trusts, including the international development and emergency relief agency, Tearfund. Though a Scot, John doesn’t care for golf or fishing, but enjoys walking, reading, Scottish dancing, and watching cricket and rugby. A long-term member of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, he enjoys playing complex multi-player economic simulation railway board games with anyone who has the patience to play with him.
