Who are we and what do we do?
Dr Jon Murden NMMT CEO
I have been getting acquainted with how things are done at Beaulieu and in the National Motor Museum Trust, focusing on meeting Trustees, staff, volunteers, members and other key stakeholders, learning more about the wonderful collections we care for.
We have ambitious plans for driving the National Motor Museum forward, many of which I hope will resonate with your reasons for joining the Beaulieu One Hundred. As you are a crucial part of the family of supporters who help the National Motor Museum to thrive, I hope to share with you the inside track on these developments as the strategy takes its final shape.
As well as my background in museum management and development, you may already know that I love my cars – especially bread-and-butter post-war British classics.

Paul Denman, the approachable Close Brothers private client director, who has been in the industry for more than 3 decades, has a particular specialism in dealing with clients connected to motor racing, which is also a personal passion (Paul owns a number of classic cars). ‘I’ve been involved in the motorsport arena for over twenty years,’ he says. ‘I started working as a sponsor of a well-known professional racing driver, moving on to working with clients who raced historic Grand Prix cars. Then came more professional racing drivers, dealers and people in the motorsport media.’ Among his career highlights, meeting motor racing heroes such as Sir Stirling Moss, Jenson Button and John Surtees were some of the most memorable. Paul has been a B100 and council member since 2014.
