Tom Van Oss

Vice Chair


I joined the Board in October 2020. I was appointed Vice Chair in December 2022 when I took over as Chair of the Finance, Audit and Operations committee. I also chair the Community First Investment committee. I have been a trustee of the Cornwall Community Foundation since 2015.

Until recently, I was on the council of the Royal College of Art, where I chaired its Audit and Risk committee. I was also a member of the audit committee at The Courtauld Institute and was a governor of Falmouth University for eight years.

My background is in corporate finance. For 22 years I ran my own practice as an adviser on mergers and acquisitions in the financial sector. I am based in London but live in Cornwall for as much of the year as possible.
