Laurence Mutkin

Laurence is an ESU alumnus and stands for a second term as a Trustee. Laurence spent most of his career working in investment banks, before moving to the public sector. Without the ESU’s schools exchange programme, Laurence doubts he would have had the cultural awareness to land his first job, which was with the US bank Salomon Brothers. Laurence is now co-Head of Research and Analysis at the UK Debt Management Office, which manages the country’s debt. Laurence is also on the Board of the RAC.
