As Director of Development, Bryan Lewis, supported by Development Manager Suzi Squires and their colleagues, meets with members of our extended community at home and abroad, communicates with them on a daily basis and sees it as his personal mission to reengage with alumni who in many cases have not been in contact with the schools for many years. Bryan is also responsible for leading the campaign to raise a very significant capital sum for Access to Excellence.
Suzi Squires is the Development Manager and has oversight of the work of the Department, ensuring that the Development Office's numerous contacts with individual members of the extended ESMS Community are supportive and helpful.
