Cllr Mr Stuart Driver

Stuart Driver moved in to Milton Abbas in Sep 2019, having joined Cobham Mission Systems (Wimborne) as a Programme Director in early 2018.  He is married to Paula, and they have 2 adult daughters.   Stuart started his career as an Aerospace Engineering Apprentice with the MOD and worked alongside Royal Air Force and Royal Navy colleagues for the next 20 years, progressing through a number of Engineering and Project Management roles.  Transferring to the Private Sector in 2009, he worked as an Aerospace Programme Manager for GE Sensing in Leicester, then as the Operations Manager for Westinghouse Rail in Chippenham, Wiltshire.  Returning to Aerospace, he now heads up the Engineering Operations and Project Management Office functions at Cobham, providing support and governance across a number of development projects.  Outside of work, Stuart is a keen photographer, woodturner and an appalling guitarist… 

“Paula and I actively sought out a more peaceful, rural home life when we moved from Chippenham.  We absolutely love living in Milton Abbas and feel privileged to be part of the local community.  I personally wanted to be a part of the Parish Council in the hope that my background, enthusiasm and practical skills could be of use to the community – plus I am keen to help preserve the village’s evident charm and history”
