ECHO Trustees


The ECHO Board is comprised of the Board of Trustees, the Board of Associate Trustees and the soon to be incorporated Board of Advisors. The personnel on the ECHO Board range from physical anthropologists, archaeologists, and cultural heritage managers, to designers, lawyers, bankers, and IT technicians, with Professor Fekri A. Hassan, Emeritus Professor of Archaeology, UCL, as its Honorary President. These various people bring a combination of archaeological, artistic, administrative and business skills to the company. They have given their time freely for the cause, making sure all the legal arrangements and other areas of operation are in place.
