John Pemberton - Trust Vice-Chairman

John’s career was in IT, building up the computer software business he founded over 25 years to taking it public.

Since retiring from the software business, he has spent his time running his small farm in the New Forest with its horses, cattle and woodland, and he serves on a number of non-profit making bodies. He plans another retirement to enjoy the farm and other recreations.

He seeks to contribute to the Centre the skills he has learnt in business as well as computing, and sees its success comes from inspiring people, especially the next generation, to enjoy and conserve the rich environment of the Forest.
