Grey matter

Rona Fairhead's call to the DCMS to find some brainier new Trustees has landed quite a set.

Mark "Two Brains" Damazer, who worked as Assistant Director to Tony Hall when he was running News at the turn of the century, will be on the chuffer from Oxford, where he is currently Master of St Peter's College. He replaces Diane Coyle as Vice-Chair.

Sir Roger Carr, Chairman of BAe and a member of the Prime Minister's Business Advisory Group, is also a visiting fellow at the Said Business School, Oxford. He went to Nottingham High School, and got a BA in Business Studies from Nottingham Polytechnic - now Nottingham Trent University.

Mark Florman, was expelled from Harrow School, but recovered to pick up a B.Sc at the LSE. Thence to banking in Chicago, and back to London for the heady days of County Natwest, and onto giant Nordic merchant banking. He's co-founder of private equity firm 8 Miles, with its current chairman Sir Bob Geldof, backing African ventures.

More on all of them after further research....
