Ross Mackenzie

I have lived in the Buckhurst Hill area for more than 15 years and have four school-aged daughters. I am passionate about the importance of education and in supporting students to realise their potential. From a personal perspective I recognise how important the educational settings of the schools I attended and the teachers who inspired me, have been to my own development and achievement. I was appointed a Trust Governor in July 2020 and I am excited about working with the staff and governors of St John’s to assure the continued success of the school.

I am currently a Managing Director for a multinational bank. I have over twenty years’ experience in the financial services sector, where I have held a variety of senior leadership roles in risk management and internal audit, including Chief Operating Officer and transformation leadership for several global functions. I am a qualified Chartered Accountant, a graduate of the University of Glasgow in Accounting & Finance and Harvard Business School, where I studied General Management.
