New President for the BLS

Darren Robinson has been appointed as the new President of the British-Luxembourg Society (BLS), succeeding Louise Benjamin who will remain on the council as the Outgoing President. The BLS was established in 1947 to promote cultural, social, and economic ties between the United Kingdom and Luxembourg, and has since become a vibrant community of members passionate about the exchange of ideas and knowledge between the two countries. Founding members of the society include Pierre Werner, the 18th Prime Minister of Luxembourg, also referred to as the ‘Father of the Euro’.

Robinson expressed his excitement and gratitude for his election as the new President of the BLS, stating, “It’s a great honour and pleasure to serve as the representative of the British-Luxembourg Society. With nearly 400 members, consisting of 40% Luxembourgers, 40% British, and 20% other nationalities, we are a diverse community. I am grateful to David Clark, the previous President, for revitalising our prestigious society and inviting me to join, and to Louise Benjamin, the outgoing President, for her confidence in me and for firmly establishing the BLS as a recognised institution in Luxembourg.”

The 2023 officers of the BLS are Darren Robinson (President), Louise Benjamin (Outgoing President), Chris Atkinson (Vice President), Jacqui Spence (Vice President), Nasir Zubairi (Vice President), Diane Longden (Treasurer), and Alexander Ludbrook-Miles (General Secretary). The 2023 council members include Michael-James Clifton, Paul Schonenberg, Fiona Urquhart Johnstone, Ian Berry, Patrick Birden, Jan Koenighaus, Christos Floros, Thomas Keipes, Edward Hyslop, Amela Skenderovic, Ajibade Yusuf, Laurent Peusch, and Debbie O’Keefe.
