RPA appoints permanent chief as National Trust boss steps down

Before his latest appointment, he was Basic Payment Scheme operational delivery director for seven years.

 

He said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as chief executive of the RPA after being given the opportunity to lead the agency at the start of 2017.

 

“Our work is vital to supporting our world-leading food and farming industry at such a crucial time. My commitment to improving our service to farmers remains stronger than ever.

 

“I look forward to leading the agency, providing stability and support to this vital sector as we prepare to leave the EU.”

 

National Trust

 

At the National Trust, the leadership is set to change in March next year as Dame Helen Ghosh announced she would be standing down as director general.

 

Dame Helen, who has led the charity since 2012, is leaving to take up a new role as the Master of Balliol College at Oxford University.

 

She said: “There is never a good time to leave a job you love, so the decision was a very tough one.

 

“But the Trust is in a great place and great hands, and 2018 which will be my sixth year here seemed the right time to hand over to someone else.”

 

Dame Helen came in for criticism at the Oxford Farming Conference this year after saying she wanted to ‘farm beauty’.

 

The Trust will begin the recruitment process for a new DG in the autumn.
