Business and finance professional John Eaton has been appointed to the board of The Parks Trust in Milton Keynes.

Mr Eaton, a Milton Keynes resident since 1988, has held a range of senior leadership positions in UK and international retail financial services.

He spent most of his career with Barclays Bank where his roles included deputy chief executive of Barclaycard.

Mr Eaton said: “I believe in The Parks Trust very strongly and think that its formation and distinctive business model has created a unique opportunity for Milton Keynes. I am very excited to be a part of the Trust’s future development.”

The Parks Trust cares for 4,500 acres of parks and green spaces across the city and is funded entirely through its property and investments. The trust is looking for one more trustee with financial investment experience.
