Alun Pugh is the son of a Welsh coal miner. He left a successful 20 year career in further education in 1999 when he was elected to the National Assembly for Wales. Upon his re-election in 2003, he was promoted to the Welsh Cabinet as Minister for Culture and the Welsh Language. In that role, he extended the scope of legislation to protect and enhance the use of Welsh.

A finance graduate with post graduate qualifications in computer science and education, Alun moved to Gwynedd in 1992 to lead the business school at Coleg Llandrillo. He has lived in North Wales ever since. In 2007 he was appointed Director of Cymdeithas Eryri, a Llanberis based environmental charity.
