Drew Bailey

Drew’s first child was born in 2004 with OA/TOF, following a difficult pregnancy where mum was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at 12 weeks. Drew’s son has had multiple surgeries, most recently to address scoliosis through fusing 18 vertibrae with rods and screws with procedures carried out at Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham and Great Ormond Street in London. He is currently studying English Literature at Nottingham Trent University – although keeping his distance from the hospital!

Drew is a Chartered Accountant and a Chartered Tax Advisor, having had a 25-year career in “Big4” accountancy firms, the last 10 years as a partner. He retired as a partner in 2021 and now runs his own international tax practice.

Drew, originally became a trustee in 2006, for a brief period before taking a break to focus on his family. He joined the Finance sub-committee in 2013 and became a trustee again in April 2023. He was appointed Chair in May 2024.

Besides his membership of the Finance sub-committee, he has provided ad hoc support and guidance to TOFS over this period, to varying degrees depending on our needs and his availability. His principal objective as Chair is to facilitate the smooth running, success and succession of the organisation.

As well as TOFS and Tax, Drew is a keen rower, as well as being a bit of a “petrolhead”. He lives with his wife and two other children near Lichfield, Staffordshire.
