Ashley Truluck CB CBE

Chairman

After a distinguished military career, latterly specialising in programme management, Ashley carried these skills over into public and commercial life. In addition to managing Army and NATO re-structuring, he has implemented a national helicopter programme, law courts’ rationalisation, and a national communications network for UK Fire & Rescue Services. He acted as a strategic advisor to IBM and now indulges his interest in history & travel by working in the leisure industry - and until recently running an offshore sailing association. He worked for five years with the Department of Communities & Local Government and he and his wife Jenny have been actively involved in community and charity work at national, regional and local level.

They have lived near Amesbury, Swindon and Salisbury and are now settled in the beautiful Chalke Valley.  He sees the Foundation as a natural culmination of his community work to date and looks forward to ‘putting people who care in touch with communities who matter’.
