The National Motor Museum has appointed a new chair of its board of trustees to help drive ambitious plans for the future after celebrating its landmark half century.
International lawyer Robert MacGregor, Senior Partner EMEA at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP), will begin his new voluntary role at Beaulieu on October 15.
His passion for cars was fuelled by his father Ian MacGregor, a motorsport business partner of Sir Stirling Moss and chair of the Aston Martin Owners Club (AMOC) whose family got involved with his historic car restoration projects at home.
Robert joins the National Motor Museum as it embarks on a four-phase scheme to realise ambitions and raise more than £15 million to improve museum spaces, equipment and interpretation for younger visitors, as well as upgrade facilities for the conservation and restoration of its 285 vehicles on display.
