The American-Scottish Foundation is proud to honor:

Francis Finlay, CMG, OBE, has had a long career in Anglo-American relations and international finance. Born in Britain, Francis attended Ardvreck in Crieff, Scotland before going on to Merton College, Oxford University. In 1982, he and John Clay co-founded Clay Finlay Inc., a global investment management firm that he led as Co-Chair and CEO through 2006.

Francis’ attention then turned to “a portfolio of enthusiasms.” He is a Governor and Trustee of the Ditchley Foundation, Chairman Emeritus of the EastWest Institute, and Director and former Chairman of American Friends of the British Museum. He is a member of the Oxford University Chancellors Court of Benefactors and Honorary Fellow of Merton College.

His not-for-profit directorships focus on education and the arts, especially in relation to Scotland. He is a Director of the American Patrons of the National Library and Galleries of Scotland and an Honorary Patron of the American-Scottish Foundation.

Paul Little is the Principal and CEO of City of Glasgow College. For over 30 years, he has led and reshaped five UK colleges, including the pioneering merger, in 2010, of Glasgow’s specialist colleges into a £228 million super campus accommodating 40,000 students from 130 different nations. City of Glasgow College is now one of Scotland’s top performing tertiary institutions and holds the Number One college ranking for WorldSkills UK, an academic competition.

A Harvard Business School graduate and distinguished academic, Principal Little is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and has received the Queen’s Anniversary Award and the Inspiring Glasgow Award.

MISSION OF THE AMERICAN SCOTTISH FOUNDATION®:

The American-Scottish Foundation®, established in 1956 by Lord Malcolm Douglas-Hamilton, is an international not-for-profit organization, that looks to establish links and strengthen ties between Scotland and the United States, through the pursuit of contemporary social, cultural, educational, and business activities.

The mission remains as relevant today as when ASF was founded - to champion the extraordinary relationship between the peoples of Scotland and the United States - a bridge between the two great countries - seeking to strengthen & support the future of the Scottish American diaspora, and its legacy.

The Wallace Award®s evening benefits the ongoing work of the Foundation and allows ASF to further our mission of strengthening ties between Scotland and the United States through the pursuit of contemporary social, cultural, educational and business activities. It is the most significant event for the ASF during the year and the selection of Honorees is done with much thought and deliberation.
