Appointment of Vice President of the Old Hymerians Association in 2022

Will Hairsine, OH 1992-97, has been appointed the role of Vice President of the Old Hymerians Association

We are excited to announce the appointment of Will Hairsine as Vice President of the Old Hymerians Association in 2022.  He will take over from Helen Saunders as President at the Hull Dinner in September 2023 where he will remain in post for 12 months.

Will studied at Hymers College for five years, completing his GCSEs and A Levels at the School. He was sponsored by the Royal Marines to study Politics at the University of Leicester. On graduation he joined the Royal Marines as an Officer but promptly broke his back so transferred to the Royal Marines Band Service where he played the Bass Trombone.

After three years, his hankering for leadership led him to transfer to the Royal Navy where he served as a Principal Warfare Officer over 16 operational deployments. Since leaving the Royal Navy three years ago, Will has run delivery stations for Amazon during the pandemic and for the past year has worked for KPMG as a Senior Manager in the consultancy function.

Will is a keen advocate for veterans and mental health awareness and is proactive in helping veterans transition from the service into the civilian world. For ten years he was a trustee of the Sailors Children's Society, which is based in Hull.

I am absolutely delighted and honoured to be voted in as Vice President of the OHA. Having left the military a couple of years ago I’ve had a bit more time and capacity to re-engage with the Old Hymerians. In this short time I’ve been blown away with the proactive, inclusive and future focused nature of the association. I’m hugely excited to be starting my year as VP as we move in to Hymers’ 130th year and hope to meet as many Old Hymerians as possible at the many events we have planned.

Yours, Will
