Lyle Hill is our newest recruit, joining Charlotte Street Partners after his graduation from the University of Cambridge in Human, Social and Political Sciences.
What this former Scottish youth cricket international may lack in worldly experience, he more than makes up for in youthful vigour. At University, he was active in political societies, organising speaking events and debates for students and academics. He also dabbled in policy, contributing and editing policy papers for student-run think tanks.
Despite appearing entirely studious, he enjoyed the more social side of his time at Cambridge, helping to organise his college’s ‘May Ball’. The Ball has been dubiously referred to as “the Seventh Best Party in the World” by Time magazine. In his final year, Lyle became Vice-President of the event’s committee.
Before organising political and social events, Lyle was a keen sportsman, playing hockey for Scotland at youth level, as well as cricket. Whilst his ability may have plateaued (so he says), his enthusiasm has not, and he continues to play socially.
