Tom Ingham Clark

The 504th Master of The Clothworkers’ Company (2023-4)

Tom joined the Court in 2015 and has most recently served on the Superintendence and Property Committees. For some years, Tom has been the liaison between The Company and its Army affiliate, the Scots Guards.

He started his career in the military joining 1st Battalion Scots Guards in Hong Kong, where he served alongside The Company’s recently retired Beadle, Mike Drummond. On leaving his last military role (Regimental Signals Officer), he founded a small business for two years and then moved into wealth management. He worked for several firms stretching across Equitable Life, Coutts & Co and EFG Private Bank. Most recently, Tom was Managing Director of stockbroker EFG Harris Allday and chaired its main committees. He also sat on the bank’s management committee, but left banking in 2021 to follow other interests.

Tom is a Trustee of The Clothworkers' Foundation. He is also the Finance Trustee for Food4Heroes, Finance & Governance Trustee for The Vavengers and Finance Trustee for Mission Motorsport. Food4Heroes is a UK charity that sprung up during the pandemic, providing nutritious meals to NHS COVID ward staff. In the first three months of the pandemic, Food4Heroes funded and delivered 230,000 meals to 43 hospital sites across the UK. The charity’s latest initiative is Fifty Families, which aims to take 50 families out of food poverty for a year and record their journeys with the aim of providing a roadmap to share with other charities and government. The Vavengers, is a survivor-led, female charity working to end gender-based violence against women and girls. It campaigns for systemic change and support for FGM/C survivors and migrants. Mission Motorsport is a veteran’s charity supporting former service personnel in adapting to civilian life and using their unique skills to find sustainable employment.

In his teenage years, his family spent summer holidays in Argyll, but now Tom enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters in south-west France. His interests include hill walking, road cycling, tennis, and shooting.

Tom is son of Alastair Ingham Clark (Master excused service, 1998-99). His two elder brothers, Jamie and Alex, are both on the Livery and two of his three daughters are on the Freedom. His eldest daughter, Emma, is currently serving as a Trustee of The Clothworkers’ Foundation.
