John Dowell

College Sponsor Governor

John is a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, having qualified as an accountant in 1994. He currently works as Executive Director of Finance at Exeter College. Prior to that, he had a 30+ year career in the NHS, working in senior finance positions at a number of institutions in London and Devon during that time. Amongst many other things, this has earned him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the governance of complex organisations.

A proud Devonian, alumnus of Okehampton and Exeter Colleges respectively, he owes much to the local education eco-system and considers it a great privilege to be able to make a contribution to ensuring our young people are able to access the great quality services they deserve.

Outside of work, three grown up children and two granddaughters are a source of pride and running is a source of much pleasure.
