Your Council 22/23

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.

John Mayhead Elected to Council October 2022
As editor of the UK Hagerty Price Guide, John Mayhead’s everyday focus is on the global classic and collector car market. His love of motoring started as a teenager when his father, a mechanical engineer, helped him rebuild his first car, a 1969 VW Beetle. A sometimes-unhealthy obsession with Alfa Romeos followed and in more recent years he has developed a keen interest in early MGs. A motoring journalist by trade, John writes on a wide range of subjects including pre-war racing and record-breaking drivers and finds time to be a concours judge. A member since 2019, John is passionate about the maintenance of our national motoring heritage.

Heather Jackson, responsible for B100 Membership Development, networking and recruiting members, as well as ‘editor’ of the blog, and other things… was born in what was Northern Rhodesia, now Zambia – to London and Nottingham born parents with strong motoring connections – her father was a rally driver in his spare time, and responsible for the development of the Motoring Club in Mutare, and her mother’s father worked on the Campbell family’s record attempts.
A child of the Commonwealth, she was raised in what is now Zimbabwe, and went on to spend 20 years in South Africa before coming to the UK in 2008 and joining Beaulieu in 2016. Her son joined her in 2018 and was crowned 2020 bowler of the year at Beaulieu cricket club. A keen slalom water skier when she was in South Africa, she believes 4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul.
Heather can be contacted on 07818 454519
