King’s College London announces that Sir Christopher Geidt has accepted the university’s invitation to serve as Chairman of its Governing Council, succeeding the Duke of Wellington in August 2016.

Charged with leading the governance of the university, the role of Chairman is independent and unremunerated.

Sir Christopher is an alumnus and Fellow of King’s. He graduated from the university in War Studies and later went on to study International Relations at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He was recently a Fisher Family Fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

Sir Christopher is the Private Secretary to HM The Queen, Patron of King’s. He joined the Royal Household in 2002 after a career in military and diplomatic service.

The Duke of Wellington said: 'I congratulate Sir Christopher Geidt on being appointed the next Chairman of King’s College London. He is an alumnus and a Fellow of the university. His wide experience in academia, the Foreign Office and the Royal Household will be of great benefit to the Council of King’s. I wish him every success.'

Sir Christopher said: ‘I am pleased and proud to have been appointed Chairman. It will be a great honour for me to serve King’s at a time in its history of enormous promise and excitement. I very much look forward to doing whatever I can to promote the very best interests of this great university, its students and staff in the coming years.”
