Meet the Trustees – Andrew Littlejohns

28 January 2021

Andrew Littlejohns is proving to be a very welcome addition to our Management Board. We asked Andrew to tell us a little more about his background and skills.

Andrew says: “I work with owners, ranging from Banks through Private Equity funds to individuals, to help transform their businesses. I normally work as a Chairman or Interim CEO, across a broad variety of sectors and sizes of business. I regularly lead turnarounds, strategic, operational and/or commercial transformations.”

On a personal note: “I live in Berkshire with my wife, two children and a crazy dog. A ‘retired sportsman’, what little spare time I have is spent shouting at the England Rugby, Cricket or Football teams on television, walking, cycling and travelling (although not too much of the latter recently, for obvious reasons).”

We asked Andrew why he wanted to become a Berkshire Youth Trustee: “It is not an overstatement that the massive and consistent cuts in Government youth spending and the wider, protracted and serious impacts of Covid-19 have combined to further marginalise already underprivileged and vulnerable young people in our country. They are all of our futures and I wanted, in some small way, to help the incredible people at Berkshire Youth who work tirelessly, around the clock, to plug the ever growing gaps in our local youth support.”
