The Governing Body is delighted to announce the election of Helen Pennant as Vice President of Clare Hall, for a period of four years with effect from 1 August 2020. Helen will succeed Professor Alan Short, who will be assuming the Presidency of the College on that date.
Helen has been Director of the Cambridge Trust since 2013, and joined Clare Hall as a Fellow the same year. Helen is already well known to the College community, she is currently an active member of the College Development Committee and has represented the College at a number of overseas members’ events. She brings a wealth of experience in strategic leadership, and her understanding of the financial challenges facing students and the strength of her relationships across the collegiate University will be particularly valuable at this time.
Helen says: 'Clare Hall is a wonderful College. I have hugely enjoyed being a Fellow and I am absolutely delighted and honoured to have been elected as its next Vice President.’
