We would like to congratulate Simon McNamara (OA 1978), who accepted his Honorary Doctor of Science from the University of Hertfordshire this September. Coincidentally, Simon found himself accepting this award at St Albans Abbey, mere metres away from his childhood School. During his speech, Simon remembered his time at the School and wondered to himself what Mr Kilvington would have thought of this honorary degree. You can watch Simon’s full speech on YouTube.
Simon has spent much of his life working overseas in various banking, computer science and statistics roles. He currently works at NatWest and has been delivering the bank’s technology strategy since 2013. Simon has also recently featured in our Inspiring Old Albanians social media campaign - please take a look if you are interested in reading more about his career path. Huge congratulations once again to Simon and very well deserved!
