Chair of Trustees
Paul Baldwin was appointed as Chair of Battersea in August 2020. Paul has a passion for animal welfare and an extensive background in leading global charities. He is a Council member and non-executive Treasurer of Fauna & Flora International, and a former Chair of World Animal Protection and the Disabled Living Foundation. Paul is also a trustee at the social purpose charity Shaw Trust, and has held board roles at the Gorilla Organisation and First Rung; a charity that provides vocational training and work-experience opportunities to young people.
In his previous career, Paul spent nearly 20 years working in the banking industry for Union Bank of Switzerland, Kleinwort Benson, Goldman Sachs, and most recently as a Managing Director in Global Markets at HSBC.
Other than working as a charity trustee, Paul is happiest when in the mountains: hiking, ultra-running, skiing, or teaching adaptive snow sports to disabled people.
