Dudley College Principal, Lowell Williams will be assuming the position of Chairman of the Black Country Living Museum Trust, following the retirement of current Chairman and longstanding member of the Board of Trustees, John Hughes.

Lowell became a Trustee of the Museum in September 2013 and his appointment as Deputy Chair and Chair designate was unanimously agreed by the board at its meeting in July 2014. Lowell has been Principal at Dudley College since 2008 and in that time has led the creation of the multi-million pound Dudley Learning Quarter including state-of-the-art vocational, STEM and A level centres. Under his leadership, Dudley College has become rated in the top 10% of colleges in England.

Lowell Williams said, “John is a hard act to follow, and firstly I want, on behalf of the Board, to offer my thanks and admiration for everything he has achieved.  I am looking forward with great enthusiasm to taking on the role of Chairman to help guide this wonderful museum to even greater success.”
