Martin Wyn-Griffith

Chair of the Board of Governors

Martin Wyn-Griffith - Governor - New College Swindon

Martin was appointed Chair of the Board of Governors of the New College Swindon Corporation when the two former colleges in Swindon merged in August 2020.

In 2010, he retired from the Civil Service where he worked for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, leading on enterprise, entrepreneurship and small business policy. Since retiring, he has pursued several voluntary roles in charities.

For ten years, he was a Trustee and then Chair of the Board of Trustees of UnLtd, the £100m Lottery-endowed charitable foundation that supports social entrepreneurs and he was the Independent Non-Executive Director of the Institute for Family Businesses Research Foundation.

Martin is a dynamic, strategic leader who has taken both small and large organisations through a variety of different change situations – start-up, managing rapid growth, mergers, turn-around and cost cutting. Committed to making a difference to people’s lives, he has managed a diverse career, firstly, in marketing at EMI Records then starting and growing his own pop video production company in London and Los Angeles. In 1994, he completed his MBA at Henley and pursued a career advising entrepreneurs and small businesses before being head-hunted into Government in 2002. He brings valuable insights and new thinking to the organisations with which he works.

Martin is married, lives in Swindon and balances his voluntary work with a long-standing passion for Manchester United and playing golf.
