The Pluralists Club was the brain child of Modwenna Rees-Mogg, who realised as she balanced three companies, two NED roles, being an Angel, home life, personal coaching and being a published author, that she was not alone. There are other people who have equally unique Plural careers, and many more who would like to have them, but for whom there was no support structure.
Modwenna's experience of moving from the world of investment banking into Angel investment, start-ups, and running conferences and networking events meant that she was ideally placed to provide a Club for people like herself; a place where like-minded people could expand their career horizons in non-traditional directions and benefit from building a network of equally highly skilled professionals. And so the idea of The Pluralists Club was born.
Modwenna is a serial entrepreneur in the world of finance. She started her career at Kleinwort Benson, before moving to Somerset in 1996. Since then she has become the Founder of Angel News, the leading reporter on the Angel Industry. Alongside this Modwenna (somehow) finds time to be an NED at Albion Tech & General VCT PLC and Asset Match Ltd and run several Conferences each year. She is also the Co-Founder of CrowdRating. She is also a published author, and her next book, a reworking of The Canterbury Tales, will be published once she has had time to write it.
Reece has extensive senior management experience in brand development, change and operational leadership in both SME's and large corporate beauty brands such as Coty, ghd, Wella, through to boutique hospitality brands such as Home House, Century Soho. He has an impressive ability to translate successes in one sector into a new sector, combining experience with a fresh approach.
With a strong record in sales and marketing, demonstrated across a range of luxury lifestyle sectors, he is experienced in delivering significant business growth with sure-footed leadership and management skills. He is a natural marketer with a keen understanding of branding and its key role in driving growth, whilst maintaining a grounded sense of self-worth and an encompassing sense of humour.
