Gradus ad Parnassum

Wykehamist John Whittingdale has lighted upon Wykehamist Sir David Cecil Clementi to conduct a review of the BBC's governance, to report back early in 2016.

Sir David (PPE Lincoln College, Oxford, Blue for athletics, and MBA Harvard) is a former Chairman of Virgin Money and Prudential (when BBC Trustee Nick Prettejohn was CEO) and previously a Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, as well as serving as Warden of Winchester College.

Since 2006, he's been a Trustee of the Royal Opera House, where he might well have encountered Lord Hall is his role as CEO.  He has homes in Wimbledon and on the Isle of Wight, where he races yachts.

Sir David's great great grandfather was the Italian-born English musician, Muzio Clementi, who thankfully has featured as Radio 3 Composer of the Week more than once.
