Philip Lawford

Administrator of The Linbury Trust

Philip Lawford graduated from Oxford with a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics and spent twenty years in investment banking, principally with UBS and later as a Managing Director at ING Barings.

In 2003 he left the City, becoming the administrator of The Linbury Trust, the grant-making charitable foundation established by John and Anya Sainsbury (Lord and Lady Sainsbury of Preston Candover).

His theatrical career, which began around seven years ago, and has been confined to amateur and semi-professional companies in Hertfordshire, has included appearances in opera as well as assumptions of some of the major tenor and baritone roles in Gilbert & Sullivan operettas and American musicals. Audiences frequently find his portrayals amusing, usually for the wrong reasons.
