Paul Feeney to join the board of Sense International

7 October 2013

Sense International has announced the appointment of Paul Feeney as a non-executive trustee. He will bring a diverse range of skills and experience to the board.

As a trustee, Paul will help oversee the management and overall strategic direction of the charity. Sense International supports deafblind people in Bangladesh, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Peru, Romania and Uganda. Deafblind children in these countries desperately need to receive education and healthcare and without this many will lead short and lonely lives.

Paul Feeney is Chief Executive of Old Mutual Wealth, a leading investment business comprising Skandia and Old Mutual Global Investors, a role he has held since July 2012. He joined Old Mutual in January 2012 as CEO of Asset Management before moving into his present position. Prior to joining Old Mutual he was Executive Director and Global Head of Distribution for BNY Mellon Asset Management. Paul has a PhD in Financial Economics from the University of Wales and has been a long term supporter of Sense International.

Paul Feeney said: "Sense International helps some of the most disadvantaged children in the world, those who can neither see nor hear and who live in developing countries. Most deafblind people in these countries are children as few live to adulthood without the right professional care. I have supported Sense International for twelve years and have seen the miracles they perform. I am honoured to be able to continue that work now as a member of the board."

Sunil Sheth, Chair of Sense International, said: "I am delighted to welcome Paul to the board of Sense International and look forward to working with him to improve the lives of deafblind children in the countries we operate in. Paul's expertise and enthusiasm will be an asset to our board and help us continue to build upon our successes."
