Tony Woodland was born in 1961 in Croydon and was educated and lived in the South London/Surrey area until his early thirties. He worked for Lloyds Bank in the City of London and for Westminster City Council, before he started working for the family care home business, firstly in Sutton and later in Guildford. During his employment he studied and qualified for an HNC in Business Studies and a CIM diploma in Marketing.
When the business was sold and his father relocated to Guernsey and set up a care home business there, Tony joined him on the island a few years later in 1998.
Tony got to know John Ramplin very well from his investment in Guernsey Care Homes Holdings.
Tony is married to Corinna and has one son and two step-children. He loves to travel and likes to keeps active. He has an affinity with Spain, where his mum was born and resides, as do his two brothers. He enjoys various sports, especially golf, tennis and padel tennis, which he recently helped introduce to the island.
“I’m privileged and honoured to be involved with the John Ramplin Charitable Trust and to be in the fortunate position to be able to help so many worthy locally based charities, especially those focussing on medical research and charities aimed at children and the elder person.”
