Zuill appointed National Trust chief

Bill Zuill, new executive director the Bermuda National Trust

The Bermuda National Trust has named Bill Zuill as its new executive director.

Mr Zuill succeeds Jennifer Gray, who stepped down in July after nine years in the post to pursue other interests.

Trust president, Lt Col William White, said Mr Zuill had been appointed after an extensive search which attracted a number of very strong applicants.

“We are delighted that Bill has agreed to join the Trust,” Mr White said. “We are very grateful to Jennifer for her dedicated service to the Trust and believe Bill will build on her great work.

“The Council of the Trust looks forward to working with Bill to continue the Trust’s mission of conserving and raising awareness of Bermuda’s built and natural heritage including its beautiful open spaces.”

Mr Zuill has spent the last three and a half years working with his wife in their Queen Management Services group of companies.

Mr Zuill, a former reporter and editor of The Royal Gazette, said: “I am deeply honoured to have been selected for this important role. In some ways, this role means that I am coming home as I feel that I grew up with the Trust since my father was director 1972 until the early 1990s and I spent a lot of time on Trust properties.

“Ever since I have had a great passion for Bermuda’s history and environment and look forward to utilising my experience as a journalist and as a manager to make the Trust an even better organisation than it is today.”
