Glenalmond Welcomes New Director of Development

Glenalmond College has welcomed Ed Schneider as its new Director of Development. 


Mr Schneider was born and educated in the US and has made the UK his home for the past 30 years.

A former teacher, he has spent the past 20 years working in development and fundraising for independent schools, including Radley and Wellington College. Mr Schneider has also worked as a consultant for a variety of educational charities and was the founder of The Prince Albert Foundation for Transformational Bursaries at Wellington as well as serving for 10 years as a Trustee for Eastside Young Leaders Academy, working with disadvantaged young people in London.

He will be supported in his new role at Glenalmond College by Amber Aitken, Alumni Relations Officer, and is very much looking forward to meeting - online and later in person - lots of former pupils, known as Old Glenalmonds. 

An avid hill walker and occasional climber, he is delighted to have moved to Scotland to have joined Glenalmond College at a very exciting time for the school.

Dr Michael Alderson, Head of Glenalmond College, extended a very warm welcome to Mr Schenider.

“We are delighted to be welcoming Ed who brings a wealth of experience to this important role for our school and how we communicate with our global community of former pupils and their families,” said Dr Alderson.

“Ed is joining us at a very exciting time as we prepare for Glenalmond’s 175th anniversary in 2022 with a range of exciting events and initiatives being planned to celebrate that landmark in the school’s history.”
