Douglas Rouse

Director of corporate partnerships, Save the Children

Former City banker Douglas Rouse has been heading up Save the Children’s Corporate Partnerships team since September 2009 growing revenues by over 100 per cent in 2010.

His appointment at Save the Children followed a seven-year spell as Head of Corporate Fundraising at the British Heart Foundation.

Here he turned a team of nine raising £0.5m a year into an award-winning fundraising force of 20, generating more than twelve times this figure by the time he left.

His success in the charity sector was preceded by an earlier career in the City where he rose from the position of bank clerk at Williams and Glynn’s Bank in London in the late 1970s to director of Investment Banks First Interstate and Dresdner Kleinwort Benson within just 15 years.

Prior to becoming a director he led various trading teams in key international markets including the UK, New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
