About Hugo

A Wellington and Durham University graduate, Hugo started his career as a management consultant at EY. Specialising in performance optimisation and project management, he gained a wealth of experience working with financial services and central government.

In 2014, Hugo decided to take all he had learnt from consultancy and follow his passion for Character Education. Inspired by his Psychology degree Hugo founded Role Models, an organisation whose mission is to inspire a generation of young people around the world to be the best version of themselves.

Hugo loves his sport, particularly cricket, rugby, hockey and golf. He enjoys caring for his beloved window boxes and is a trustee of a charity delivering holiday camps for children with special educational needs.

Hugo’s Role Model is Jane Austen; a lady who managed to make ‘olden day’ life come alive.
