Chris Pennison

Having spent the last thirty-five years in Industry, and Manufacturing across the North East, working for some of the most well known companies including Fisher Price, Black & Decker & businesses local to Sunderland,  has given him a great  insight into the world of business. He became responsible for his first business at the age of twenty eight, and has worked for a number of businesses since then. This has given him a great insight into the how businesses and people work.

Working with the Laidlaw Trust, and the team at Academy 360 in Pennywell, is his first venture into supporting the educational system, however having various family members as teachers he has remained close to the educational establishment throughout his life.  Having the ability to be able to support both Academy 360, and the Trust, in the combined aims of delivering opportunity, and improving the future of all our children within the Trust is something of which he is fully supportive.
