Edward Phillips

Trustee
ed@portsmouthsailtrainingtrust.org

Ed is the founder Chairman and CEO of the Portsmouth Sail Training Trust. His role as a social entrepreneur with a number of community initiatives is borne of a long standing faith in the need to raise aspirations of young people to enable them to be the best they can be, no matter what start they have in life.
A keen sailor all his life, Ed and his family all spend much of their leisure time on the water, adventuring together and sharing the joys of sailing with others.
Ed’s career was launched with eight years as a front line infantry officer serving in various parts of the world.  He then joined IBM in 1990 pursuing a career as a leader in IT strategic outsourcing; winning and running a wide variety of contracts across the globe, acquiring skills which, since summer 2013, he now puts to use raising aspirations in inner city communities.

David Gratton

Trustee

David joined Portsmouth Sail Training Trust in January 2015 following his decision to cease being a full time finance executive. David’s decision to build a portfolio of a small number of local clients was taken alongside a long term commitment to PSTT to be its part-time Finance Director and Trustee.

David’s passion for sailing stems from his first experiences in a dinghy though Venture Scouts. Having introduced both sons to sailing at an early age, David has seen how much they have benefitted not only from the sailing itself but also, more importantly, from the life skills, experiences and friendships developed.

David has also worked actively as a volunteer supporting the Royal Yachting Association junior and youth programmes.
