The Charity Commission has appointed Tony Cohen, Ian Karet and Nina Hingorani-Crain as new members to its board.
They replace Eryl Besse and Tony Leifer, whose terms of office come to an end in December 2018, and fill a current vacancy. The new members will take up their positions on 1 January 2019.
According to the group their combined experience brings a “wealth of knowledge and skills” that will help the Commission deliver on its new five-year strategy, published in October.
Baroness Stowell, chair of the Charity Commission, said: “I am delighted to welcome Nina, Tony and Ian to the Commission. They were stand out candidates from a high quality field, and each bring valuable skills and strong leadership. I am confident each will make a hugely valuable contribution in the months and years ahead.
“I look forward to working with them and all members of the Commission to ensure that charity can thrive and inspire trust and deliver as much benefit as possible back to society.”
She added: “Tony Leifer and Eryl have also made significant contributions in their time at the Commission. I have valued their advice immensely over the last year and they have worked tirelessly throughout their six years on the board in order that the Commission regulates charities effectively and in the public interest.”
