The CEO of Aston Martin, Andy Palmer, has revealed his proposal to create a charitable fund to help industrial apprentices. This program would be privately funded and would be supported by Palmer. Palmer began his own career as an apprentice. Support would also come from his wife Hitomi as well as shareholders and members of the Aston Martin Lagonda Senior Management team.
This would only be a beginning to the Palmer Foundation. Over time, scholarship access would expand to include other areas important to the audio industry such as legal, marketing and design.
The foundation will provide an opportunity for inspired young people to develop themselves by providing the tools they need to tap their talents and reach their full potential.
Later this year details about the foundation are expected.
