Christopher Moran is a successful entrepreneur and well-known public figure.
Besides his business interests, Christopher has a strong commitment to wider society supporting institutions in a wide range of sectors including national heritage, arts, health & wellbeing, faith and international relations.
With an Irish father, Christopher is keenly aware of the complex and historic ties between Britain and Ireland. As Chairman of the charity Cooperation Ireland he promotes peace and reconciliation working under the joint patronage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and President of Ireland Mary McAleese.
With a passion for national and built heritage, Christopher is funding an ongoing multimillion pound restoration of Crosby Hall. With a forensic attention to detail he is painstakingly bringing one of London’s most historic buildings and the former residence of Sir Thomas More back to its former glory.
Similarly he is involved in one of Britain’s most important heritage projects, the Mary Rose Trust, supporting the development of a new world class museum for the famous Tudor flagship.
He plays a major role with one of London’s cultural institutions – the London Symphony Orchestra – chairing the LSO Finance Board, working on their Advisory Council, and acting as a Trustee on the London Symphony Orchestra Endowment Trust.
Christopher’s contribution as Chair of University College London Hospitals Charitable Foundation helps UCL deliver cutting-edge care for patients living with cancer and other life-threatening conditions. The Charitable Foundation is substantially involved with building a new state of the art £110 million Cancer Centre which will afford new innovative ways of treating patients together with cutting edge translational research.
As a firm believer in inter-faith cohesion he serves as Vice-Chair of the Council of Christians and Jews in their promotion of dialogue and understanding between faith communities.
He supports the work of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales as member of the Prince’s Charities Council providing strategic advice to ensure the long-term sustainability of the charities and creating a wider network to support The Prince’s vision for the charities.
