Lynne Brown

College Services Manager

Lynne is the College Services Manager at Kings London.

“I really enjoy my role and my colleagues are very supportive and helpful. I enjoy meeting new people and spending time with my 3 children and husband.  I love to read, especially autobiographies as I enjoy finding out about people's lives and experiences. We have a family home in Malta which I try to visit a couple of times a year to unwind and relax from the busy life at Kings. I am also a wine connoisseur and I love to try new wines from around the world.”

Deborah Naudon

Finance Manager

"Before arriving in England, I diversified my work experience and worked in international environments in Switzerland and France. Since then, I've studied a Master's degree in International Business Finance at Bournemouth University.

I always want to work in an international environment, and I can communicate in English, Spanish and French. I am new to the Education industry, but I feel that Kings is the best place to make a personal contribution."

Gaston Zapata

Finance Assistant

"I come from Chile and was a student at this wonderful college in 1996. I got involved in trips for students in the summer of 1997 and 12 years later I am still working here! As a well-travelled person (I've travelled to 10 countries in Europe and many cities in England!!) I am in a position to provide sound travel information of all kinds. Groups and individual students have benefited from my advice, enhancing their experience at Kings."
