The Leathersellers' Company is one of the ancient Livery Companies of the City.
It is made up of 150 liverymen (senior members) and a variable number of freemen (entry level member). The Company is governed by an elected Master (Chairman-equivalent) and three Wardens, and the Court of Assistants (the Board), which is a permanent body comprised of Liverymen who have served as Master (Pastmasters) and those who have not (Assistants). The Company elects a new Master and Wardens each summer.
The Master, Wardens and Court of Assistants act as a chairman and board of directors, meeting once a month to decide policy and oversee Company affairs. Assisting them is a small permanent staff headed by the Clerk (CEO-equivalent), who is responsible for the day-to-day management of Company business.
The Leathersellers' Company devotes its energies to support for charity, education and the British leather trade.
