Niki Crookdake - Local authority governor


I joined Holy Trinity as an LA governor in September 2012. Other local voluntary work includes four years as a parent governor at Sheen Mount School; chair of Richmond Schools Forum, a committee that has a consultative role in relation to the distribution of school funds in Richmond; a consultant for the Brilliant club, a charity that helps low participation communities access university; and a mentor for gifted and talented pupils at Richmond Park Academy, my local state secondary school.


To pay the bills, I worked for the last two years as an investment director for an EIS fund, Calculus Capital. Prior to this, I spent ten years running a training and consultancy business, which specialised in valuation, restructuring and modelling. I worked with private equity firms, banks, investment managers and accountants. Previously, I worked in industry for Bass, a leisure conglomerate and as a leisure equity analyst for Deutsche Bank, then Cazenove. Earlier in my career, I worked in investment banking for Kleinwort Benson, as a lawyer with Slaughter and May and graduated with a Masters in finance from LBS.
