Rob French

Rob has spent 30+ years in the corporate sector, working internationally for Shell in senior Marketing and Sales roles and leading major transformation projects. For the past eight years, in addition to leading the Data Strategy and Analytics practice, he built a company-wide Data Privacy approach and helped to shape the UK conversation on data trust and the transparent, ethical use of data. Through his personal experiences, including providing literacy support to school children in deprived areas of the country, Rob has built strong alignment with the Belong Network’s aims. Motivated by collaboration and learning from people with insight, Rob is looking forward to bringing his commercial, data-driven approach and experience of using evidence, showing respect for difference and being courageous to the Belong Trustee team.
